Skilled Nursing Facility Medicare Billing Compliance Basics and More

This 3-day workshop offers comprehensive SNF Billing training to successfully submit claims and receive payment for services provided in your Skilled Nursing Facility.

Polaris Group, with over 30 years of hands-on experience, provides more than regulations and theory for attendees.  Polaris Group’s LTC Training Institute – SNF Medicare Billing Compliance - Basics workshop will cover numerous topics including a review of Medicare Skilled Nursing Facility regulations for billing, the creation of compliant Part A and Part B claims for various billing situations and other aspects of Medicare billing often handled in the Business Office.  Such topics as navigating the Medicare FISS system, SNF Consolidated Billing guidelines, skilled coverage criteria, Medicare Beneficiary Notice compliance and much more. Included will be a review of PDPM and how PDPM changes affect billing.  Hands on experience in creating claims for various situations will also be included in this training.

Attendees will receive a comprehensive training manual that can be used as a resource in your facility, as well as a flash drive with forms and procedures which allows for customization to fit your operational needs. 

We provide a unique “how to implement” approach to our training which includes skill-building for Part A and B Medicare billing, Managed Care, and Medicare as Secondary Payer.  The workshop will provide attendees with the tools they will need to ensure timely revenue and manage the complexities of Medicare compliance in the ever-changing billing environment.
