2020 Evaluation and Management Symposium: Virtual Conference
Presented Thursday, September 24, 2020
Most people understand that the 60-day rule requires health care organizations to report and return overpayments to Medicare. However, many mistakenly conclude that common billing errors create an overpayment. As a result, millions of dollars are unnecessarily refunded. This session will identify many situations that, while mistakes, do NOT require a refund. Gain understanding of why billing under the name and number of the wrong professional, having a Medicare encounter with insufficient documentation, or an unsigned note will typically NOT require a refund. Improve your knowledge of the regulations and avoid unnecessary paybacks.
