Locum tenens aren’t going away—one should stay current and be confident to bill correctly and get paid what’s due.
DURHAM, N.C. (PRWEB) June 07, 2018
AudioEducator, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host the live webinar “Locum Tenens: How to do Short-Term Help the Right Way” with coding expert Jill Young on Thursday, June 14, 2018, at 1:00 pm ET.
Locum Tenens is Latin for “one holding a place”; but in a healthcare facility, it really means someone who is fulfilling the duties of another. Locums provide a ready means to fill positions that are temporarily empty—perhaps, because of sickness or leave. However, the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) has changed its verbiage when it comes to locum tenens—which is now defined as “fee for time compensation arrangements.”
This session with coding expert Jill Young will cover the nuts and bolts of locum tenens—and who can bill as one. Young will explain how to properly bill for this small but important role, and provide valuable insights on how to use the Q6 modifier, who accepts it, the right definition, who can bill for locums and for how long, and the documentation required. Locums aren’t going away; therefore, it’s important to stay current and bill correctly so that one gets paid what’s due.
The session will help office managers, office administrators, coders, and billers to learn about:
- Q6 modifier: What it means and who accepts it?
- Locum Tenens: different carriers have different definitions—which is right?
- How long can one bill for locums?
- Who can bill as a locum?
- What documentation must one keep?
