Bring your team to this 60-minute webcast at 1 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday, October 9.
The three-day payment window, also known as the preadmission services rule or the 72-hour rule, is a perpetually challenging aspect of hospital billing. This webcast will review the rules of the 3-day payment window, including proper use of modifier -PD, condition code 51, and the impact of the 2-midnight and inpatient-only rules. During this webcast, regulatory specialist Kimberly A. Hoy Baker, JD, CPC, will review the rules and will explain the billing nuances and special applications of the rules to ensure facilities are being properly reimbursed for the services they provide.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the two separate time frames defined under the preadmission services rule
  • Discuss how the rule applies differently to diagnostic and non-diagnostic services
  • Identify the proper billing of cases when the inpatient stay is not reasonable and necessary
  • Properly apply condition code 51 and modifier -PD
