New for 2020 - CME (Continuing Medical Education) Credits for MD, DO, NP, PA, RN: 4 CME Credits


*This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine and Association for Rural & Community Health Professional Coding.  The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education to physicians. The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 5.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

General description


This live course is designed for Rural Health Clinics, Community Health Centers (FQHCs), providers, quality managers, ACO leadership, and revenue cycle staff at rural health facilities who need a high-level basic explanation of how to report accurate quality metrics and who deal with HEDIS, HCC, QIP, Risk Adjustment, and Share Savings.


RHC/FQHC Overview: We will begin with a documentation>coding>billing overview including:

·       How coding and billing is different in a Rural & FQHC.

·       Review of the key elements of the CMS Benefits and Claims Manual sections (chapters 9 & 13)

·       Which services are included in the All-Inclusive Rate and which services get paid via fee-for-service or via a flat fee when billing Medicare?

·       Preventive Medicine for the IPPE, AWV, and almost a dozen other “sometimes covered” G-codes performed by a RHC.


Reporting Quality:  After a brief overview of HEDIS/HCC and other Quality Improvement programs, we will dive into relevant sections of the ICD-10-CM's "Official Guidelines for Coding & Reimbursement" and will review the instructional notes associated with key diagnoses in order to most accurately report the true complexity of care for your ACO patients and to:


·      recognize the impact of medical documentation on the accuracy and completeness of quality data,

·      properly reporting Care Management services to coordinate treating chronic diseases,

·      report accurate and complete Quality Metrics via historical claims data,

·      how to fully report the true complexity of your patients via ICD-10-CM documentation rules.


Required Course Materials: CPT, ICD-10-CM. HCPCS is optional.



General Objectives


1 - Attendees will be able to unify their clinical documentation goals with the requirements of Managed Care/ACO's to adjust payments based on clinical complexity of its patient population.


2 - Attendees will learn about the specific documentation guidelines and base code instructional notes associated with the major disease categories being tracked by ACOs.


3 - Attendees will learn a structure by which they can train their providers on those additional codes and HCC categories that may become a focus in the future

and how their EHRs may hinder effective training.
