In Episode 159, Paula Digby tells Insider’s about the “No Surprises Act” and mentions some ways it may impact your organization. She refers to HealthcareBlueBook.com and FairHealthConsumer.org Then she answers questions from our friends, JoAnna and Anonymous. JoAnna asks whether the practice can bill for OB H&P when the patient is delivered by another practice via c-section. Also, what about antepartum visits by our provider? Finally, Anonymous asks whether the H&P is still required in the first 24 hours in the IRF setting since the COVID waivers relaxed some requirements. Do reach out with Ideas and Questions for future episodes – Coffee with the Coder(R) LOVES your questions!! Congratulations, JoAnna for being the “mugging” winner today!”
