Comprehensive Billing and Compliance for SNFs

This 3-day workshop offers comprehensive SNF Billing and Compliance training that will help you successfully submit and receive payment for all types of Medicare claims such as, PDPM, Medicare Secondary Payer, Medicare Advantage, ACO, Bundled Payment, Insurance, and Medicare Informational Claims. This workshop will provide the necessary information to ensure accurate and compliant claims are being sent for payment and that the billing office has an established compliance plan that covers government regulations, payer requirements, office operations, and technology requirements.  This is the perfect workshop for both seasoned and new billers.

Polaris Group, with over 30 years of hands-on experience, provides expert training and review of the Medicare/Managed Care claims process.  Polaris Group’s LTC Training Institute – SNF Comprehensive Billing and Compliance 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. Also covered will be the creation of compliant claims for complex billing situations, problem solving for atypical claims, MDS/ICD-10-CM and the claim, PDPM overview for billers, and QA oversight of your Business Office.  Sessions also include an overview of current MAC claim issues, and a look at the various government audit agencies and how to reduce your risk for audit and denials. There will be several hands on and how-to practicums to ensure understanding of the claims building process.

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

We provide a unique “how to” approach to our training.  Small class size enables all participants the chance to interact and to get answers to those questions surrounding the billing process.  The workshop will provide Billers with the tools they will need to ensure timely revenue and manage the complexities of Medicare compliance in the ever-changing billing environment.
