Course Description

To avoid improper billing and double-billing which can result in serious penalties, a careful Medicare Coverage Analysis (MCA) review is necessary as part of the Research Billing Compliance process. Determining the eligibility of a clinical study’s related tests, procedures, or interventions for Medicare coverage requires a detailed review of the clinical events specified in the protocol to determine which can be reimbursed by Medicare. This process, called Medicare Coverage Analysis (MCA), can be complex and cumbersome. This web seminar provides tips and guides to staying on track and compliant with government regulations, while also ensuring providers are appropriately reimbursed for these services.
