SCAN is committed to partnering with our physician providers in offering high quality geriatric care to our members. A significant part of that effort is to assist our providers in the provision of accurate coding that will contribute to the quality of care and support the expected revenue from the Medicare program. To this end, we present the following tools and education for all the physicians and groups providing care to our members.
CMS has re-vamped their World of Medicare
training course. Formerly, it was a single 1 hour WBT. Now it is 4 parts,
and is followed by either the Your Office in the World of Medicare
or Your Institution in the World of Medicare. These WBTs
provide a great introduction to fee-for-service Medicare. If you've ever been confused by the many rules of Medicare, you may want to check out these WBTs.
The World of Medicare targets both physicians
and providers as well as administrative staff. Your Office
and Your Institution are aimed at physicians, providers and their
staff who are enrolling in the Medicare program, to provide assistance in
completing the 855 (enrollment) forms.
We've continued to add a number of documents to HCC University to make your documentation and coding go more smoothly!
We've updated our Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) with Health Risk Assessment (HRA) package to incorporate information on 5Star coding. Since physicians are already capturing the data, we want to help make it easy to remember to submit it on the Superbill. You can also review a presentation on completing the AWV with HRA.
We'll be posting more documents on HCC University in the near future.
