Physician Infusion Services: Coding & Documentation: Ensure Proper Payment, Support Your Claims

The coding and documentation rules for outpatient infusion services do apply in the clinic setting. Yet, many physician groups aren't even aware of their compliance obligations. Consequently, they may not be appropriately paid for services rendered, or they risk losing reimbursement through payer audits. It's time to bring your facility into full compliance. Start by making sure you know and understand the rules. Our audio seminar on June 16 will walk you through coding and documentation basics, equipping you to realize the correct payment that stands up to an audit.
