Optimize Your RVUs in the Teaching Physician Setting
This webinar will be presented by Michael A. Granovsky, MD, CPC, FACEP. Medicare has made several very significant changes relaxing the rules governing Teaching Physicians (TPs). These favorable changes no longer require the attending physician to completely duplicate and re-document the evaluation performed by the resident. Instead the TP is only required to document his or her involvement in the key critical aspects of the patient’s care along with the management of the patient. Make sure you are correctly documenting your involvement in Teaching Physician cases to ensure you obtain maximal allowable reimbursement.
