Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Audits come in all shapes and sizes - internal compliance, coding validation, verifying provider documentation processes, responding to a Medicare RAC or commercial payer audit, and even the more serious, and often debilitating, defense audits. Have you ever wondered what an auditor is looking for when they review surgical coding claims and reports? Join us for this "Lunch and Learn" webinar program and discover the tools that auditors rely on.

Auditing surgical services requires knowledge of the standard coding rules and guidelines, a thorough understanding of the organization's compliance plan, an accurate interpretation of payer-specific policies, and access to a plethora of coding and auditing resources and forms.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • Audit types and how they are used to maintain compliance
  • Documentation requirements including the proper format of an operative or procedure note
  • What is and is not included in the global surgical package (0-day, 10-day, and 90-day)
  • How to verify modifiers (22, 50, 51, 52, and 59) were properly reported
  • National Correct Coding Initiatives (NCCI) edits and how to use the NCCI Policy Manual in an audit
  • Available Medicare and private payer guidelines
  • Issues commonly found in an audit

Includes a walk-through of auditing two surgical notes to see if they are compliant and coded correctly. Join Aimee Wilcox for this hour on auditing surgical services with a hands-on experience applying the information learned during the program. Boost your compliance program and prepare your staff to better understand the policies and procedures linked to surgical coding and auditing.
