DON'T GET RACKED BY THE RACs
Medicare's new Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) program is designed to ferret out incorrect payments to physicians, hospitals, and other health care professionals. TMA is offering a statewide series of seminars to help you and your staff make sure the RAC has nothing to ferret out in your practice. This course will explain the RAC program, highlight common billing and coding errors, and show you how to conduct a self-audit as part of your overall billing and coding compliance plan. Plus, everyone who attends will receive a free chart auditing tool that will help you identify problems in your office. The program is accredited to offer up to 3.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 3.75 credits in medical ethics and/or professional responsibility. Physicians who are insured with Texas Medical Liability Trust may earn a professional liability insurance discount. The seminar series begins March 23. Register online today.
