University Health hosts PMI's annual 'Reimbursement Update' class in San Antonio

Posted by Michael Moore on Dec 8, 2023 2:05:06 PM
PMI is a proud educational partner for University Health in San Antonio. This stellar organization is growing in San Antonio with a powerful, positive impact on the community. We congratulate them on the new Women’s and Children’s Hospital, and could not be more grateful for the partnership, which brings regularly scheduled, high-quality training and credentialing programs to regional practice staff.

Today, PMI faculty/presenter Lisa Maciejewski-West, CMC, CMIS, CMOM, CMCA-E/M, CPCO, owner of Gold Star Medical Business Services, taught morning and afternoon sessions: 2024 Reimbursement Update: CPT and Medicare Compliance.  Lisa teaches with a great deal of experience and know-how, and her uplifting and engaging presentation style makes for a great session. So well done!

New CPT® code and regulatory changes for 2024 will go into effect on January 1st. Numerous proposals include conversion factor payment increases for primary care / direct patient care, caregiver training services, and services involving community health workers, care navigators, and peer support specialists. The implementation of a separate add-on payment for HCPCS code G2211 is also proposed, which is expected to improve the accuracy of payment for primary and longitudinal care.

Lisa is helping to prepare attendees for the impact of coding and regulatory changes. This annual update program will help students forecast the impact on billing for their particular specialty in 2024. The training will help participants reduce denials and stay in compliance in the New Year. All proposed key changes to the procedural code set, guidelines, and issues that may impact provider reimbursement are being addressed.

We’d like to thank Magdalena Barrera, University Health Assistant Director of Outreach and Business Development, for hosting another successful day of training. Magdalena is as good as it gets in a host-partner liaison.

In a busy medical practice, the risk of error runs high. This is a dangerous assertion when you consider that mistakes in a medical record can negatively impact a patient’s health. Mistakes made repeatedly in medical claims may flag your practice for an audit and, if overpayments are found, can result in huge fines and penalties from the government.
