Article Content

This session offers nurses and associates up-to-date GI-specific reimbursement information as well as practical tips for optimizing revenue in an ASC or hospital outpatient department setting. The lecture first reviews the basics of reimbursement before highlighting the impact of 2007, 2008, and proposed 2009 payment changes on endoscopy facilities. The presentation then carefully examines steps of the charge capture process and potential gaps in the progression that might detract from collecting optimum reimbursement in your practice.
