Join Ericksen Arbuthnot to Discuss the Ins and Outs of Medical Billing
Monday, September 24, 2012

CPT 99214, 90658, 90716 ..................what are we being billed for? How do we review a medical care lien based upon the CPT codes? Join us to hear Tami Rockholt, RN, BSN, discuss healthcare provider medical billing. Learn how the CPT coding system was developed by the American Medical Association, and is not only designed to be used for proper billing and reimbursement, but also is required by law to be used for Medicare and Medicaid claims. Understand terms such as up-coding, unbundling, duplication of service and the appropriate use of the trauma team.

Learn ways to address Howell v. Hamilton Meats, as Tami explains how she, as a medical billing review expert, produces evidence for deposition and trial that judges and juries can understand. Join the discussion on how to provide evidence of reasonable value when your lien is billed at 100%. Have you seen a medical provider accept an insurance payment that is less than half the billed amount, as paid in full? Learn how you can get the same break in your cases.

Tami Rockholt, RN, BSN, found Health Cost Management (HCM) in 1997. It was sold to ExamWorks in September 2010. She continues to work through ExamWorks as an Independent Contractor doing expert witness work in medical billing and coding. She is also a nurse consultant.

Tami is qualified to testify as a medical billing review expert witness in five states, as well as Federal Court. She has testified in more than 30 depositions, arbitrations and trials. Her instructional courses on the CPT coding systems have been approved by five State Bar Associations for continuing education for attorneys and law enforcement officers.

The presentation will be held on Monday, September 24 from 10:00 A.M. until noon at the Picadilly Inn, 2305 West Shaw Avenue Fresno, CA 93711, (559) 348-5520 - just down the street from our Fresno office. Refreshments will be provided.

This course is approved for two hours of MCLE credit by the State Bar of California.
