This recorded webinar provided an update on Medicare billing and the PSR which has long been one of MIPS’ most frequently asked about issues.
As a healthcare practitioner you are legally responsible for services billed to Medicare under your Medicare provider number or in your name regardless of who does the billing or receives the benefit. The Department of Health has sophisticated methods of detecting possible inappropriate practice or incorrect claims and it is important that you remain prudent in all your billing as you will be solely responsible for repayment of the full amount in the event of an incorrect Medicare benefit.
- Understand the fundamental principles and requirements of MBS and PBS Medicare billing
- Learn to recognise inconsistencies in item usage and combinations.
- Learn to integrate personal and practice billing processes in accordance with the MBS and PBS
