What You Should Know About Internet-Only Manuals.
In my most recent episode of Compliance Conversations, I sat down with Tyler Griffeth, a Technical Manager of Professional Documentation and Coding at Intermountain Healthcare, to discuss a couple of his favorite Medicare Internet Only Manuals (IOMs), specifically the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) Policy Manual and the Claims Processing Manual.
The NCCI Manual, about which he jokingly said, “I’ve got mine laminated, I can read it in the tub with a little bit of bubbly” is just one of his favorites. Meanwhile, the Claims Processing Manual, “Is a really great resource if you’re dealing with things like denials, but also if you’re involved in a RAC audit.”
Listen to this episode of Compliance Conversations, How to Earn a Huge ROI from Medicare’s IOMs, and learn how to:
- Use IOMs to Ensure Billing Department Compliance
- Use the NCCI Policy Manual to Clarify Procedure Codes to Physicians
- Leverage the Claims Processing Manual to Avoid Denials
- Apply Situational Modifiers in Conjunction with Codes
