The Chargemaster in the OR: From Cut to Compensation - A FREE webinar sponsored by Boston Scientific
The chargemaster is the mechanism by which everything clinicians do is translated into a language that payers (insurance companies) can understand. In this webinar, you will learn about the parts of a chargemaster, how your services in the OR are translated into billing terms, and how that impacts the way in which claims are billed and paid. You will also learn about the distinction between a billable (non-routine) supply versus a non-billable (routine) supply. You will learn about the importance of charge capture and charge reconciliation.
- Discuss the elements within a chargemaster and how they relate to charges in the OR.
- Identify what makes a supply separately billable and compliant.
- Describe the importance of charge capture and charge reconciliation.
