July 12, 2021 to July 14, 2021

Please Note: This training is limited to community health centers and look-alikes. If you are not affiliated with a health center and would like to attend, please contact us.

As the Medicare population continues to grow and the complexity of the program increases, health centers need to improve their Medicare expertise in order to optimize care for Medicare patients, maximize Medicare payment, and avoid Medicare compliance pitfalls.

This three-day intensive training will help health center personnel address challenges and identify opportunities in serving Medicare patients. Topics addressed include the following:

  • The Medicare FQHC PPS
  • Establishing G code charges
  • The Medicare FQHC cost report – why it is still important
  • Medicare Part A and Part B enrollment
  • Coordination of benefits for Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible beneficiaries
  • Payment from Medicare Advantage plans
  • Medicare coinsurance considerations
  • Beyond core FQHC services: new Medicare opportunities for health centers (e.g., care management services, virtual communication services)
  • Telehealth and Medicare

Participants can expect to leave the training with a greater understanding of how to structure health center provider enrollment policies, billing and coding practices, fee schedules, and service offerings in order to provide effective care for Medicare patients.

  • Health Center CEOs
  • CFOs
  • COOs
  • Revenue cycle managers and billing managers
