Revenue Integrity Boot Camp®

Virtual Training Environment

Revenue Integrity and Chargemaster for Critical Access Hospitals Boot Camp®

This boot camp provides education on chargemaster and revenue integrity concepts in a virtual classroom format. The program relates the chargemaster function to revenue cycle and revenue integrity functions, including cost reporting and key operational issues, such as coverage, clinical documentation, charge capture, and coding. It also provides context for chargemaster setup and maintenance within revenue integrity, aiming to help learners avoid pre- and post-billing edits and payer denials.

 

This boot camp explicitly reviews chargemaster coding requirements for CAHs and excludes discussion of topics that are specific to coding for the outpatient prospective payment system.

 

You and your team will leave this program knowing how to:

  • Provide formal, organized education and training for revenue integrity and chargemaster staff
  • Provide context for the intersection of the chargemaster with clinical/revenue departments, charge capture, coding, finance, and patient access and billing
  • Walk attendees through CMS regulatory requirements for pricing and charging patients, as well as key relationships between the chargemaster and provider cost reporting
  • Give detailed instructions for the majority of revenue codes for optimal chargemaster setup, maintenance, charge capture, and documentation
  • Review chargemaster issues for commercial/managed care versus CMS requirements for CAHs
