Noridian Outreach and Education provides in-person seminars for Medicare suppliers and referral sources to work together in understanding the various changes, tools and best practices regarding Medicare requirements. These seminars will provide DMEPOS suppliers with the knowledge you need to develop strong business practices in order to protect the beneficiaries you serve, as well as your own business.
Please join representatives from Noridian Outreach and Education, Medical Review and Appeals for "Medicare Step by Step". We are excited to offer a two track format this year which will allow attendees to customize their day by participating in the sessions most pertinent to their businesses. Attendees will be able to move freely from one track to the other to access all desired education being offered.
The policy specific track will consist of sessions addressing the following DMEPOS topics: respiratory, orthotics & prosthetics, external infusion, enteral, mobility and all types of supplies. The standard documentation requirements will be addressed as well. This format is intended to make suppliers aware of the most common errors identified by the CERT contractor, provide a detailed explanation of coverage criteria related to those areas and assist in providing information that will prevent those errors from occurring in the future.
Take time during our general track to learn about the appeals process which will give suppliers a better understanding of the actions required for an appeal once a claim is initially denied. An outline and explanation of the medical review process is on the agenda along with guest appearances from a Competitive Bid Implementation Contractor (CBIC). Sessions in the general track will be repeated to allow more flexibility in customizing your day.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) has approved six (6) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for each seminar. Noridian does not require CEUs from our supplier community; however, we offer them as an opportunity for suppliers/staff who need them as part of their Certified Professional Coder education.
Additional seminars are currently being scheduled for this fall. Stay tuned for further announcements.
