CMS recently reversed long-standing policy for billing inpatient-only procedures, providing hospitals a revenue opportunity and decreasing compliance risk. Learn how CMS’ new guidance on the three-day payment window provides new opportunities for revenue for previously denied inpatient-only procedures, including difficult “converted” procedures. This provides relief for an issue that has long been a thorn in the side of hospitals and has more recently been aggravated by confusion surrounding the 2-midnight policy.

During this program, our expert speaker Kimberly Anderwood Hoy Baker, JD, CPC, will explain the new exception to the inpatient-only billing policy as well as how the emergency and separate procedure exceptions operate. Baker will review new resources for determining when the separate procedure exception applies. She will also review strategies to leverage utilization review resources and ensure compliance with the new exception, thus avoiding missed revenue and denials.
