Product Description

Navigating the CMS- 1500 Form to Understand What Medicare is Looking For!


Coding and billing the chiropractic claim can be a challenge, especially for Medicare. There are specific rules that you need to follow to properly code and bill a claim to Medicare and most chiropractors are not even aware of them.  When these rules are followed, billing becomes easier and more effective.

In this 60-minute session, Dr. Ron Short will take you through the CMS-1500 form blank by blank and show you what Medicare is looking for. How a chiropractor completes this form varies based on several factors including the participation status of the chiropractor and whether or not there is another payer primary to Medicare. There are differences depending on whether the doctor is a participating provider or a non-participating provider.  The level of detail required here will surprise you.

Session Highlights:

  • Insights on specific information that needs to be reported on each chiropractic claim.
  • How being a Participating Provider will change the way you complete the form.
  • Why it is vitally important to be accurate on the 1500 form?
