NEW: Billing boot camp for SNFs

HCPro’s new Skilled Nursing Facility Billing Boot Camp covers the latest Medicare billing rules and regulations so that you can help your facility bill appropriately for services and prevent payment denials. The bootcamp will be held Monday, August 14 – Tuesday, August 15, from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Skilled Nursing Facility Billing Boot Camp provides hands-on, how-to education focusing on billing for Medicare Part A and B, the ins and outs of consolidated billing, and accurately completing the UB-04, PLUS guidance on understanding the SNF coverage criteria and a breakdown of the different beneficiary notices.
