Despite few recent code or rule changes in recent years, coders and HIM managers I hear from through emails and at industry events almost always mention concerns about accurately documenting and reporting drug administration services.
The services are often performed in different hospitals departments on a variety of types of patients. Revenue integrity relies on orders, nurse documentation, correctly applying coding concepts, and capturing charges based on documentation.
If you continue to struggle with accurately reporting these services, join HCPro for our annual 90-minute webcast for a comprehensive review of the revenue integrity concepts applicable to drug administration services, including tips on medication administration record (MAR) documentation, and for capturing charges.
During this program, expert speakers Jugna Shah, MPH, and Valerie A. Rinkle, MPA, will cover frequently raised questions and discuss the impact of OPPS packaging on drug administration overall payments, the importance of reviewing your MAC’s local coverage determination guidance, and hot audit topics.
The webcast will take place Friday, January 29, from 1-2:30 p.m. (Eastern). For more information, click here.
