“A clean claim should be paid in about 15 days. If a claim is denied, it could take anywhere from 30-120 days to get it paid. It takes a team to code properly and routine audits are an essential part of a healthy revenue cycle. More of our coding positions now require auditing skills.” - Libby Purser, CHI, CMC, CMIS, CMOM, CPC, CRC HIM Supervisor for a North TX multi-specialty provider network
“The Office of the Inspector General says if you bill Medicare, your coding compliance plan should include regular auditing and monitoring. If improper payments are detected and an auditor contacts your office, your best line of defense is to have established practice standards and procedures, training and education, and transparency. Even honest mistakes can trigger an audit. If your office gets on the radar of RACs, ZPICs, UPICs and other contractors commissioned by CMS, they will request the documentation that supports the claims for reimbursement that you have submitted to the Medicare program. If it’s not yours, you’ve got to pay it back!” - Robert W. Liles Managing Member of Liles Parker, PLLC, Washington D.C.
“In 2015, it was imperative that Hendrick locate a well-established, EXPERT training partner to instruct our providers in ICD-10 E&M coding. After an extensive search and interview process, PMI was the clear choice. The training and certification opportunities with PMI allowed Hendrick Provider Network to build and implement career ladders for numerous employees. In turn, these educational and career ladder opportunities have driven greater employee confidence, increased employee and physician engagement and ultimately created superior patient confidence and satisfaction in their entire healthcare team.
As a result of our continued partnership with PMI, Hendrick has been able to provide 17 employees with CMC certification, 17 employees with CMOM certification, 8 employees with CMCA-EM certification, 35 employees with Medical Front Office Skills certification and 11 employees with CMCO certification, and we look forward to our continued partnership with PMI. Together, we can make significant strides in healthcare education which will ultimately help provide better patient care.” - Marjohn Riney, BA, CMPE, CMCO, Operations Manager, Hendrick Health Abilene, TX
