CAHs and RHCs: Compliant Coding and Billing
Rural health clinics and critical access hospitals are both special types of Medicare providers. RHCs recently have started using CPT/HCPCS codes for their claims, which, has generated a number of questions surrounding the concept of a visit. For Medicare, RHCs are paid through an all-inclusive rate that is driven by the charges made for a visit.
CAHs also have a special mechanism for gaining additional reimbursement for outpatient physician services, known as the Method II billing process. For CAHs that have provider-based clinics or otherwise have physicians providing outpatient services, there is the possibility of gaining increased reimbursement. Of course, for both RHCs and CAHs, there are a host of compliance concerns surrounding proper coding and billing. This workshop addresses both the RHC use of CPT/HCPCS codes and Method II billing for CAHs. Learn more.
