The reimbursement landscape for SLP services continues to trend toward alternative payment models that focus on functional and meaningful outcomes rather than the quantity of services rendered. This webinar will help SLPs stay current on changes that affect coding, billing, and documentation. Participants will receive the latest coding and reimbursement updates that affect SLPs as well as tips on how to use Current Procedural Terminology (CPT codes), the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, and the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision (ICD-10). Health care payment systems, such as Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B, Medicaid, and private health insurance, may differ among practice settings (e.g., acute care, skilled nursing care, and outpatient). We will define and differentiate these payment systems and answer participants’ questions.
You will be able to:
- describe the two coding systems
- state changes specific to SLP CPT codes
- list changes in reimbursement specific to certain settings
- compare ways to chart efficiently on paper and in electronic health records
