IHA is offering industry leader HCPro’s popular Medicare Boot Camp®—Utilization Review Version as part of a multiyear commitment to members’ utilization review (UR) educational needs. The intensive two-day program focuses on Medicare rules and regulations related to patient status and the role of the UR committee.
Participants will dive into the complex world of Medicare regulations through the boot camp’s nationally recognized curriculum. The course will provide a foundational understanding of Medicare regulations critical to proper compliance, correct reimbursement and stabilizing inpatient payments.
This expert-led program will:
Teach using the actual rules—you will learn how to find and apply rules and guidelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to ensure Medicare beneficiaries are placed in the correct status and billed correctly for the services they receive;
Supply you with the resources and skills needed to navigate the Medicare website and to research and prioritize your Medicare questions long after the boot camp ends; and
Examine case studies to help you understand the concepts and apply them to real-world situations.
New this year: Participants will study clinical examples and resources from Livanta National Medicare Claim Review Contractor, the entity performing Medicare short stay reviews (formerly called Two-Midnight rule reviews). Expert faculty will also cover facet joint interventions/injections, the new service added to the prior authorization list in 2023.
