Discover the Coding, Billing & Compliance Issues NPP Services Bring To The Table

Non-physician practitioners (NPPs) are playing an increasingly significant role in the healthcare industry, but many providers don’t really know how to properly bill for NPP services. NPPs have their own unique coding, billing, and compliance rules and issues—and you’re at risk for serious trouble if you don’t brush up on the NPP-specific guidelines.

Learn how to comply with NPP rules in this information-packed audio presentation by healthcare management consultant Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D. Discover how to most effectively utilize NPPs in physician practices and hospital settings. Learn how to correctly bill and code for NPP services, as well as what you can expect in terms of reimbursement.

After attending this audio event, you will understand the billing rules and coding requirements for NPP services. You will have a solid understanding of how much Medicare pays for NPP services and the special compliance issues that affect NPPs. You’ll walk away with the tools and knowledge you need to properly use NPPs in your healthcare setting.
