    Sabotaging Your Coding and CDI Reporting

    Coders, clinical documentation integrity specialist and revenue cycle professionals will be the beneficiaries next Tuesday during the live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays when healthcare attorney and litigator Brianna J. Santolli returns to the broadcast and cuts through the legal jargon to warn of tactics deployed by some Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAO) to preserve profits by inappropriately denying prior authorizations. Using a recent case conducted by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General, Santolli, a litigator at the law firm Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, will explain in clear and simple terms how even though, the coding and documentation was correctly reported for the services provided, MAO will often deny or delay services for medically necessary care.

    Telehealth: Myths and Truths

    Telehealth: Myths and Truths

    Controversy, confusion and contradiction are obfuscating the reporting of telehealth services, especially now during the recently extended public health emergency. There is so much inconsistency with how to report telehealth right now, between what Medicare determines you can do, and what the mix of commercial payers declare is appropriate. And then there are individual state executive orders. What is the reality of telehealth rules like place of service, modifiers, and audio and video versus audio-only options? 
    In the light of this maelstrom of entanglements, we asked professional coder and consultant Terry Fletcher to return to the broadcast next Tuesday, July 26, 10 a.m. Eastern.
    As an added attraction, we are pleased to welcome Ernie Clevenger, the newly elected president of the Health Care Administrators Association to the broadcast.

    Cost Efficiency with the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System

    Cost Efficiency with the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System

    With the recent announcement of the 2023 Physician Fee Schedule, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) remains committed to encouraging and incentivizing cost efficiency by providers. Physicians electing to participate in the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) will experience +/-9 percent impact in their traditional Medicare reimbursement based on their performance, 30 percent (2.7 percent of the total) of which is derived from cost efficiency based solely on claims data.

    During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesday, James S. Kennedy MD, will briefly review these MIPS inpatient and outpatient episode models, including screening colonoscopies, cataract surgery, knee and hip replacements, and many others that are being assessed, all of which make a coder’s and CDI specialist’s job more important than ever.For further information, you can hear Dr. Kennedy speak on this subject at the AAPC Regional HEALTHCON being held in Denver on August 4, 2022; learn more at

Today’s episode 434

Overall I thought it was just okay because while most segments were very good, I didn’t understand what Dr Foggle was trying to accomplish. Your notes said he was going to give an update on COVID 19 but it seemed all he did was question the President’s doctors and their treatments. If he wants to be an analyst for a tv network and stir up conflict what he was doing might have been ok, but I was disappointed you gave him a forum on your podcast to spew his opinion. I expect more from a professional medical podcast

VACCINE HESITANCY WARFARE NOW?

This site has become a WHO and CDC mouthpiece. And the “facts” stated are opinions that are filled with the “buzzwords” and ridiculous recommendations. The use of words like “battle” and “war” against those who do not take the vaccine is dangerous and a precursor to discrimination. Where is our freedom to control my own body and make my own medical decisions? The moral high grounding over those who have or are going to take the vaccine is insulting of my intelligence. The current vaccines were tested on people for two months in small samples and not tested on animals. And there has never been a successful coronavirus vaccine created for the previous coronaviruses.
Your diversity lie was also insulting. Look at the low statistics in Africa where the draconian mandates are not being undertaken.

No, I do not trust you as you jump to the edicts of Dr. FAUCI and the WHO. You don’t cite your sources and express in your facts as opinions and I will no longer listen.
Stop the fear mongering!!

Good Info, Annoying intro

I find the oldtimey radio intro and delivery style really annoying. It’s great industry info, just the way it’s delivered is not my style. Keep it straight
