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.
