The role of the utilization review (UR) committee has changed as facilities move to reporting condition code W2 for post-discharge reviews, instead of reporting condition code 44 for concurrent reviews. Join us at 1 p.m. (Eastern) Tuesday, December 17, for this 90-minute audio conference. Kimberly Anderwood Hoy Baker, JD, will help you understand the difference between condition codes W2 and 44, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and how to bill under the new regulations. She will also discuss the structure and function of the UR committee and its role in ensuring proper reimbursement for inpatient care.
