TPEs, ADRs, Pre-Payment Reviews, Post-Payment Audits and Suspensions – The Impact of these Administrative Enforcement Tools on Your Practice (and the Associated Impact on Your Third-Party Billing Company).

Over the past year, more and more physician practices and clinics have been subjected to Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE) audits, Additional Documentation Requests (ADRs), Pre-Payment Reviews and / or Post-Payment Audits by both UPICs and ZPICs. While the government has placed some restrictions on their use, contractors continue to exercise great latitude in their scope and the length that they are imposed. Similarly, contractors remain in control of post-payments conducted and suspension actions recommended to CMS. In this webinar, attorneys Heidi Kocher and Mary Soule will discuss these enforcement actions and outline the adverse impact each action can have on your practice (and on your third-party billing company).

No-Cost and Low-Cost Ways to Ethically Market Your Third-Party Billing Company or Physician Practice.

Outside billers and medical practices haven’t really marketed very aggressively using the internet. With the exception of select specialty areas (such as dentists) and a limited number of large outside billing companies, most billing companies haven’t engaged in active online marketing. That means that the competition isn’t going to be as aggressive as it is in other industries. To a lesser extent, this is also true for small physician practices. Customers today are not constrained by geography. There has been a generational shift when it comes to identifying a vendor or health care provider. Now, more than any prior time in history, health care providers will be more willing to use third-party billing companies outside of their community (and even out-of-state). In this session, Salma Mokbel and attorney Ish Laher will a number of the digital marketing steps you can take that that are free or very inexpensive. This webinar is scheduled for 60 minutes with a Q & A session to follow. Registration is free for all AMBA members and Liles Parker clients. Please register here.
