Coding, Billing & Reimbursement for Non-Emergent Care in the Emergency Department (ED)

September 10 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm MDT

This webinar addresses the levels and types of services in the ED and differentiates between emergent, urgent and clinical levels of services. This program will help personnel understand the reasons for increasing volumes of urgent and clinical level services in the ED, the increasing needs for fast tracks and establishment of urgent-care clinics; and pressures on Medicare and other third-party payers to create special coding, billing and reimbursement processes for non-emergent care in hospital EDs. The webinar will also review how EMTALA rules and requirements dovetail with non-emergent levels of care.

  1. Describe the levels and types of services in the ED.
  2. Differentiate between emergent, urgent and clinical levels of services.
