The nationwide rise of identifiable allergens has resulted in a notable increase in billing and payment of allergy and asthma codes. High reimbursement rates and limited oversight allows some providers to exploit this vulnerability, obtaining payment for services that may not be medically necessary or provided at all.
Our upcoming webinar will discuss the top allergy and asthma codes billed by providers and how to effectively data mine for patterns and schemes. Investigations supervisor Sharron Cannella will offer an investigator’s perspective on how to recognize red flags in asthma and allergy medical record documentation that would warrant a more in-depth medical review. NHCAA has awarded this live webinar one (1) Continuing Professional Education credit towards the AHFI® designation. The attestation link will be distributed following the webinar.
You’ll learn how to:
- Identify top paid allergy and asthma codes used in common healthcare schemes
- Analyze asthma and allergy claims data effectively to identify patterns and schemes
- Recognize red flags when conducting cursory examinations of medical documentation
