New regulations allow hospitals to bill Part B for inpatient cases that are internally reviewed and “self-denied” within one year of the date of service. But utilization review staff are unsure when to use the old condition code 44 process and when to opt for the new process using condition code W2. Operationalizing these rules has proved challenging, causing recoding, rebilling, and expensive slow-downs in the revenue cycle.
 
Part B rebilling using condition code W2 can be challenging for organizations—but with appropriate guidance and an understanding of the regulations, it doesn’t have to be. Learn strategies for implementing a rebilling method at your organization that streamlines the utilization review, billing, and coding processes.
 
Expert speaker Kimberly Anderwood Hoy Baker, JD, CPC, discusses the difference between condition codes W2 and 44, and how to bill under the regulations, and how to think smarter about billing with condition code W2, sooner rather than later. She will also discuss strategies for operationalizing the use of condition code W2 to avoid revenue cycle problems and provide a documentation check sheet for working through this process at your organization.
