This year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) added even more services to its approved telemedicine list, and you can be sure that the agency will continue this trend in coming years. That's great news for both your potential patients and your practice. But the coding is hardly straightforward, and without an understanding of your legal requirements and risks, your bottom-line could suffer.
With the proven strategies inside this Telemedicine Essentials Toolkit, you can finally get paid what you deserve for these non-face-to-face services, minimize your legal risks, and avoid financial losses. And, if you order within the next 5 days, you can also get a $75 discount off the regular price.
Adding telehealth services into your practice can be easier than you think. However, to do so successfully and profitably you must know what specific steps to take, what services you can get paid for and the legal and regulatory issues that need addressing.
This is where telemedicine expert, Adam Darkins, MBChB, MPHM, MD, FRCS, can help. Dr. Darkins has developed large telehealth networks, ones bridging the continuum of care between primary care, secondary care and tertiary care specialist centers, to support 40 medical specialties incorporate telemedicine services effectively with a sound underlying business case.
During an online, 60-minute, online training session, Dr. Darkins will walk you through whether it’s time to add and/or expand telehealth services into your practice. He’ll also help you learn how to identify which services are eligible for reimbursement, the range of telehealth technologies in routine use, the value of having an electronic patient record to support virtual care services, how states are playing a leading role in implementing new payment models, and so much more.
Here are just a few of the practical strategies you’ll receive by ordering this online training:
Sure, providing telemedicine services can significantly expand your patient base and boost your bottom line, but that could all be for nothing if you end up paying massive compliance violation penalties and fines or end up in court.
So, if you think complying with the numerous government rules are regulations is a pain, adding telemedicine into the mix could send you over the edge. That is unless you understand where your liability really is (i.e. massive HIPAA penalties, Medicare fraud allegations, state-specific fines, etc.).
That’s where healthcare attorney, Heidi Kocher, BS, MBA, JD, CHC, can help. Heidi's 60-minute online training session will walk you through the highest telemedicine risks areas you’ll face, and what you can do to avoid them before they become a problem. You’ll receive step-by-step advice on how you can protect yourself and your practice from the very real financial, compliance and legal ramifications of providing telemedicine services.
