Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) has issued what are referred to Physician at Teaching Hospital (PATH) guidelines. This allows the physician to use a resident’s or fellow’s note for the purpose of billing when other documentation requirements are met. Teaching hospitals and healthcare entities benefitting from the CMS Teaching Physician provision for residency programs have found it challenging to balance providing quality resident education while understanding and adhering to the CMS guidelines which dictate the circumstances under which a physician could be reimbursed while working along with residents and medical students.

In January 2018, CMS has revised a portion of these guidelines, to the delight of many physicians. However, Teaching Physician activities are still monitored closely by federal audit programs. It is, therefore, important that physicians and medical coders understand these guidelines and correctly identify billable services when billing under this provision.

This webinar is designed to explain services that are billable under the PATH guidelines and unravel the documentation requirements for various types of services such as office visits, inpatient rounds, as well as psych and critical care services. We will also discuss who qualifies when billing under the Primary Exception rule and correct use of modifiers when billing for these services.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Identify and define provider types affected under the PATH guidelines
  • Determine appropriate documentation needed when billing under the PATH guidelines.
  • Discuss billing under the Primary Care Exception
  • Identify appropriate modifiers required when billing Medicare

Who Will Benefit:

  • Medical Billers
  • Medical Coders
  • Office Managers
  • Coding Compliance Officers & Auditors
  • Physicians working in Academic Medical Centers (Teaching Hospitals)
