Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"Medicare Changes"

The above link is for local carriers in various states regarding Medicare changes. I am passing this on to you for informational purposes only. I am not an expert in Medicare coding or reimbursement, but it has always been my mantra that, “If you make the feds happy, you satisfy everyone.”

Please download the document and read it carefully. If your state is not listed as a contractor for Medicare, then this does not specifically apply to you. However, all Medicare contractors in every state are very similar in their interpretation of federal requirements, so contact the carrier directly in your state. Although it is a federal program, there are multiple carriers in every state that interpret the same set of rules with minor variations.
