Medicare G-Codes for SLPs: The Key to Outcomes and Payment (On Demand Webinar)
Congress mandated that SLPs providing therapy services report outcomes in 2012. As a result, all speech-language pathologists who see Medicare Part B beneficiaries must begin reporting patient conditions and outcomes on claim forms using G-codes and severity modifiers. The measures are based on ASHA’s National Outcomes Measurement System (NOMS) and use a seven-point severity modifier system that corresponds to the NOMS Functional Communication Measures. Beginning July 1, 2013, speech-language pathologists who see Medicare patients and do not report accurately will have their claims return unpaid, and payment will not be issued until the claim is returned with correct reporting. The documentation requirements that include the G-code functional reporting process became effective January 1, 2013. This session offers simplified instructions on the new functional reporting requirements and using NOMS to assist with compliance.
You will be able to:
- Comply with 2013 Medicare rules regarding claims-based outcome reporting and documentation for speech-language pathology services.
- Identify the uses of ASHA’s data collection tool, the National Outcome Measurement System, and the process for reporting data and generating reports for Medicare and clinical practice use.
- Integrate use of NOMS and outcomes reporting into clinical documentation and billing.
- Understand and apply the outcome reporting to various clinical scenarios.
