Light broke on hospital providers as CMS relented on payment cuts tied to the controversial two-midnight rule.
Get a glimpse of your cost-based performance with the mid-year quality resource and use reports (QRURs) that CMS recently made available to all eligible providers.
In the Jan. 25 issue of Part B News, editor Julia Kyles, CPC, shared a "lifeline" for practices seeking to report their 2015 physician quality reporting system (PQRS) data.
In 2015, providers undercoded their way out of $1.2 billion, a large portion of which was tied to underreporting established-patient office visits related to E/M codes 99211-99215.
Make sure your billing staff know CMS has issued a change request to include influenza virus vaccine CPT code 90630 (Influenza virus vaccine, quadrivalent (IIV4), split virus, preservative free, for intradermal use) for claims with dates of service on or after Aug. 1, 2015.
