Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM) is going through some specific challenges in obtaining appropriate reimbursement for services rendered. In this 60-minute session Maxine Collins will provide a brief review and hit some major points about reimbursement and payer policies, as they relate to billing and coding.

This webinar will discuss some of these concerns such as:

  • Place of Service issues - When did this become a problem?
  • Technical Component reimbursement - Is there a viable argument that this component is not included in the Facility DRG payment? (A review of a semi-victory on this topic will be included)
  • Issues in reimbursement for the Professional Component
  • IONM Technicians - Should they be recognized for all IONM testing (i.e. EMGs) as accredited providers by CMS?
  • Appeals - What works and for what Payers and Policies types? What is not working well?
  • What about injuries below L2 - Is there a case for getting this policy changed

The key to getting the maximum legal reimbursement for IONM procedures is to know the payer's clinical guidelines. After you register, email specific questions at least 48 hours prior to the webinar and we will attempt to address your concerns. Send to: with subject line: IONM webinar presenter question
