Learn how to ensure your billing and coding are ethically correct.You're aware that engaging in improper conduct can result in not only losses to the practice, but also in personal liabilities. What to do? The stakes are even higher now because regulatory agencies are targeting billers and coders as well as providers in fraud and Stark law cases. Want to make sure your billing and coding practices are in the clear? We will discuss ethical conduct principles that billers and coders must follow. You'll hear common ethical scenarios and learn possible approaches for addressing each. Is your staff even aware that AHIMA has a code of ethics to which we should incorporate into our practices? You'll also hear case examples of where billers and coders were held personally responsible -- and how you can avoid falling into the same trap.
