With the new year comes new regulations, and 2018 is no different. The changing year brings more compliance issues, fee schedules, and audit complications for the laboratory industry.
XIFIN’s Vice President of Commercialization Strategies, Consulting, & Industry Affairs Rina Wolf will speak in a Pathology Webinar entitled "How to Prepare Your Lab for 2018: Essential Insights into New Payer Challenges with Lab Audits, Patient Billing, Out-of-Network Claims, and Heightened Scrutiny of Lab Sales Practices" on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at 11:00 am PT.
The 90-minute webinar is especially relevant due to The Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) Part B Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS), which is set to change rates for diagnostic laboratories. This substantial shift in lab test pricing will go into effect on January 1, 2018.
Gain insight into:
- PAMA Updates
- Billing Compliance
- Prior-Authorization Methods
Other topics for the webinar include; employing documentation programs to prevent audit problems, out-of-network claims, and how to keep your sales and marketing team in accordance to statutes.
Wolf joins speaker Karen Lovitch, an attorney that specializes in legal matters that affect the healthcare and laboratory industry, and moderator Richard Faherty, a private consultant for the clinical laboratory services with more than 30 years of experience.
