Cash Practice Webinar Series Presents Kathy Mills Chang MCS-P CCPC CCCA
There are certain business rules that are simply…well, rules. And they apply to all healthcare businesses, whether a practice considers themselves cash-based or not. The principles of coding, compliance, and documentation and Medicare apply to all providers in practice, perhaps to varying degrees.
Don’t be lulled into complacency just because you think your cash-based practice is exempt from the rules of healthcare. Kathy Mills Chang will join us for a fast-paced session to help ensure consistency in the most basic compliance requirements for all providers. Even if you don’t bill insurance, and even if you don’t see Medicare patients, you’ll leave this quick session with the answers you need to remain as congruent with your business practices as you are with your patient care.
This quick review will include the basics of:
- HIPAA requirements for the most basic practice systems
- Financial compliance in every situation
- Medicare compliance, even if you don’t see them
- Documentation minimums to meet the rule
