Three members of National Medical Billing Services’ senior leadership team will be featured speakers Becker’s 12th Annual Spine, Orthopedic, and Pain Management-Driven ASC Conference. National Medical is a national healthcare revenue cycle management company that specializes in servicing ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and their affiliated surgeons. Both presentations are currently slated for Friday, June 13.
Lisa Rock, National Medical’s President, will discuss “Tough Coding & Billing Issues for Pain Management.” During this session, Lisa will share tips with the attendees for improving the accuracy of billing and coding for pain management procedures as well as guidelines for managing denials. She will also discuss compliance issues and proven methods to ensure revenue is optimized.
“When it comes to coding and billing, pain management is one of the most challenging of all the specialties,” says Rock. “As a result of our work with ASCs across the U.S., we’ve identified some of the most common errors. I look forward to sharing tips with attendees for improving billing and coding accuracy that result in optimized revenue.”
Stacie Fults, Vice President of Customer Service, and Scott Allen, Vice President of Managed Care Contracting, will jointly deliver “Getting the Most Out of Your Managed Care Contracts.” This presentation will highlight how ASC leaders can analyze their managed care contracts to better understand individual payor’s terms and reimbursement rates and then how to apply them to the revenue cycle. Guidelines for successfully renegotiating contracts will also be presented.
This conference, which will focus exclusively on orthopedic, spine and pain management-driven ASCs, brings together surgeons, physician leaders, administrators and ASC business and clinical leaders from across the U.S. Attendees will learn ways to manage challenging clinical, business and financial issues as well as gain insights for enhancing efficiency and profitability.
The conference is June 12-14 at the Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago.
