Available Rural Health Coding & Billing Specialist Training

January 30, 2017

Due to overwhelming demand, the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services/ Office of Primary Care & Rural Health is offering another “Rural Health Coding & Billing Specialist (RH-CBS)Training” on March 20 & 21, 2017, at the Capital Mall – Community Room, in Jefferson City, MO, from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.

With the April 2016 requirement by CMS to require RHCs to provide HCPCS code-level detail (CPT and HCPCS-2) – it has never been more important to make sure you are documenting and coding for 100% of what is done.  Billing is not supposed to change – but if you aren’t documenting and coding correctly, revenue may be left on the table!

The training session is free to attend but enrollment is limited and will fill up quickly.

Please see the following links: Training Details/Information, Agenda and to Register online, or for PDF version.

December 20, 2016

Rural Emergency Medicine (REM) Course
April 19-21, 2017 at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE

The Rural Emergency Medicine Course is designed for physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practioners to review low-frequency, high-risk emergencies and practice lifesaving procedures in a realistic, controlled teaching environment.  Our highly relevant and informative core sessions are updated each year by board-certified emergency medicine physicians.  The 2017 event will include small group skills labs using patient simulators, lightly embalmed cadavers, and standardized patients.  Procedure-based learning will include basic intubation, rescue airway devices and surgical airways, splinting, intraosseous access, chest tubes, domestic violence recognition and treatment, mega-code simulations, and EKG interpretation.  The University of Nebraska Medical Center and Children’s Hospital & Medical Center of Omaha are co-providing this event with the goal to offer diverse learning opportunities related to both adult and pediatric emergencies.

Below is a link to the full website and contains a schedule of events.  We applied for accreditation and we hope to be fully accredited by the end of this week.  Enrollment fills quickly.  We suggest you sign-up at your earliest opportunity.
