Other publishers are offering TCM coding and implementation online training sessions for hundreds of dollars for each attendee. You can attend this valuable webinar for only $37 per location (you can have multiple people per location and reduce the cost per person even further).
Here are just a few of the questions you'll get answered:
√ How does location fit into the equation √ Do patients have to be a certain age to qualify? √ Can you only use TCM codes for established patients? √ What diagnoses should be used? √ What type of providers can use these codes (MDs, PA, etc.)? √ What if you can't reach the patient or caregivers for the two-day follow-up? √ What time frame counts toward two days? √ What if the patient isn't present for the face-to-face meeting, but the caregiver is? √ When does the medication reconciliation need to be perform? √ Do you have to do the medication reconciliation face-to-face? √ What if you miss a meeting deadline, can you still use the codes? √ Does the providers offering TCM services need to be the one that discharges the patient? √ What can be coded and billed in addition to the TCM services? √ What if the patient is admitted again within the 30-day TCM period? √ How does medical decision-making fit into the equation? √ What should the date of service be? √ How many times can you use the TCM codes for one patient? √ Are the codes worth the time and effort?
