Day 1: Missouri Reporting Quality and Care Management Services in Rural Health

4 CME Credits: MD, DO, NP, PA, RN

General description: 

This virtual online training is designed for Rural Health Clinics (RHC) providers, quality managers, ACO leadership, and revenue cycle staff at rural health facilities who need a high-level basic explanation of how to report accurate quality metrics and who deal with HEDIS, HCC, QIP, Risk Adjustment, and Share Savings.

RHC Overview: We will begin with a RHC documentation>coding>billing overview including:

·       How coding and billing is different in a RHC.

·       Review of the key elements of the CMS Benefits and Claims Manual sections (chapters 9 & 13).

·       Which services are included in the All-Inclusive Rate and which services get paid via fee-for-service or via a flat fee when billing Medicare?

·       Preventive Medicine for the IPPE, AWV, and almost a dozen other “sometimes covered” G-codes performed by a RHC.

Reporting Quality:  After a brief overview of HEDIS/HCC and other Quality Improvement programs, we will dive into relevant sections of the ICD-10-CM’s “Official Guidelines for Coding & Reimbursement” and will review the instructional notes associated with key diagnoses in order to most accurately report the true complexity of care for your ACO patients and to:

·      recognize the impact of medical documentation on the accuracy and completeness of quality data;

·      properly reporting Care Management services to coordinate treating chronic diseases;

·      report accurate and complete Quality Metrics via historical claims data; and,

·      how to fully report the true complexity of your patients via ICD-10-CM documentation rules.
