Medicare is, without a doubt, one of the largest insurance payers in the U.S. today. They are the leaders in policy-making decisions, and leaders in the drive for change. As the single leading insurer for the aging and disabled community, Medicare is the entity to watch and learn from.
To that end, Medicare issues monthly provider bulletins keeping all interested persons apprised of changes and issues related to healthcare in general and specifically government payers. So, we will be looking at these bulletins every month to see if there is anything that we can glean from them. Education is the key to correct coding and billing. The more we know, the better we can function in this ever changing field.
