If your hospital is rolling up all room-related services into one hourly or daily rate, you may be losing out on legitimate revenue and a way to track acuity of patients. Learn which items and services should be separately billed to be properly paid during this webcast.

CMS allows facilities to line-item report what have been traditionally thought of as non-reportable nursing services—such as injections, infusions, and transfusions—on both inpatient and outpatient claims under certain circumstances. Hospitals should establish internal policies and procedures to ensure correct billing, avoid the perception of "double dipping," and report important services that capture the increasing acuity of hospitalized patients.

During this program, expert speakers Denise Williams, RN, COC-H, AHIMA ICD-10 Ambassador, and Valerie A. Rinkle, MPA, will explain when hospitals can bill separately for nursing services and detail how to create an internal process for tracking these charges.
