Upcoming webinar: Medicare B and DMEPOS in SNFs

Understanding the many requirements for billing Medicare Part B can be a daunting task. Questions and issues will arise regarding claim discrepancies, and you’ll need to understand how to respond. Being able to verify what’s on the claim before it’s billed as well as having solid communication between billing, nursing, and therapy is paramount to successful reimbursement. This program will help explain what DMEPOS items can be billed by the SNF and how to maximize reimbursement for your facility.

Expert speaker Stefanie Corbett, DHA, will review what DMEPOS Medicare Part B will cover and the required coding for Part B claims, followed by a Q&A session during a 60-minute webinar on January 23. Please visit the HCPro Marketplace for information and registration for this webinar.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
