Surviving SB 863: A Treating and Evaluating Doctor's Guide to Getting Medical Treatment Approved
To not only survive but thrive under SB 863, treating doctors are challenged more then ever with getting treatment requests approved and then getting paid under the RBRVS fee schedule which went into effect January 1, 2014. This seminar will help treating and evaluating doctors learn how to write a bulletproof RFA, and how to document the correct MTUS section to avoid UR denials and IMR. A special presentation on the RBRVS fee schedule will be presented by CSIMS with strategies on finding solutions to the current challenges doctors are facing with getting paid for reviewing medical records.
