NJ Chiropractors are required to complete a minimum of 2 credits of ethics or recordkeeping and documentation as it pertains to the practice of chiropractic in this State for every biennial license renewal period. This course meets that requirement.

Are you coding procedures properly? Are you really familiar with ICD-10 codes? How well do you know Medicare billing? In other words, are you getting as much reimbursement as possible for the services you are rendering? Could your recordkeeping be better than it is? 

In this presentation, David Klein, owner of DK Coding, certified medical coder/auditor and compliance consultant, will provide in-depth instruction on how to properly document for maximum and correct reimbursement. He will discuss the critical resources every practice should have for accurate coding and documentation. He will review both Medicare and Commercial payer guidelines. He will show attendees how to accurately tell the story that reflects treatment being prescribed. He will review the essentials to coding and documentation including how to tell the story of care.

The primary goal for this class is to teach healthcare providers and their staff proper medical coding, documentation and compliance techniques that will help with reimbursement issues while reducing risk of audit including healthcare fraud and abuse.
