A Primer of Reimbursement, Billing, and Coding
A Primer of Reimbursement, Billing, and Coding: Essential Information for the H/P Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (with Pocket Guide), 2014
Written by Constance Dahlin, ANP-BC, ACHPN®, FPCN®, FAAN
This publication was written by an expert in advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) billing, and it reviews the fundamental mechanisms for APRN billing by combining the source documents from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in an easy to use resource book and pocket guide. In this guide, a review of APRN billing and reimbursement is captured in the history section. There is a list of the eligibility requirements, the documentation necessary for appropriate billing, and the types of visits and reimbursement codes appropriate to palliative care. The appendices are a quick resource to review important aspects of billing, reimbursement, coding, and documentation.
A Primer of Reimbursement, Billing, and Coding: Essential Information for the Hospice and Palliative Advanced Practice Registered Nurse includes the Pocket Guide, which has six of the appendices taken directly from the Primer. The Pocket Guide can also be purchased separately.
Book: 68 pages, soft cover; spiral bound
Pocket Guide: 13 cards, two-sided; clear coat finish; ring binding.
