The 2014 Medicare Compliance Forum (October 23–24) is the only seminar that will teach you how to respond to the sweeping changes CMS implemented for inpatient and outpatient services. Learn how the changes will impact operations from utilization review to billing and coding, and gain the information needed to predict the impact on your revenue stream for 2015.
The speakers discuss why these MCF sessions are important:
  • Practical Strategies for Enhancing Your UR Committee
This session is "going to give people the opportunity to not only see how they need to change their policies but it’s a chance to talk to other people and find out what they picked up from the sessions and what they already incorporated into their policies." Kimberly A. Hoy Baker, JD, CPC
  • Updates to the Outpatient Prospective Payment System APCs: How Comprehensive Can You Get?
"Be the first one in your hospital to understand the difference between the current outpatient hospital Ambulatory Payment Classifications (APCs) and comprehensive APCs and be able to explain it to management." Gina M. Reese, Esq., RN
  • Rise to the Challenge of Medicare’s “Inpatient-Only” Procedure List

  • An Inside Look at the Probe and Educate Audits of Inpatient Claims
"What has the probe and educate period actually shown? By taking a deep dive into real-life examples, this session provides an understanding of the framework under which probe and educate reviews are taking place." Ralph Wuebker, MD, MBA
The Physician Advisor: Strategies That Affect the Success of This Key Player on Your UR Committee
"A physician advisor is a critical component of your UR committee and can have a significant positive impact on both your Medicare denials and appeals. This presentation will discuss how to select, train, and engage your physician advisor with your medical staff." Mark Michelman, MD, MBA
