Webinar: Medicare and the PSR - update and emerging issues

Medicare billing and the PSR has long since been one of MIPS’ most frequently asked about issues. As a healthcare practitioner you are legally responsible for services billed to Medicare under your Medicare provider number or in your name regardless of who does the billing or receives the benefit. The Department of Health has sophisticated methods of detecting possible inappropriate practice or incorrect claims and it is important that you remain prudent in all your billing as you will be solely responsible for repayment of the full amount in the event of an incorrect Medicare benefit
Daniel Davison (Meridian Lawyers) and Dr Peter Simpson (MIPS) will highlight the recent developments regarding recovery from practices and the strategic direction of Medicare and the PSR. So, if you have a Medicare provider number, you need to attend this webinar.
