Course Description: Does your study qualify for Medicare/third party payer reimbursement? Not sure? This course will help you understand the reimbursement policy for clinical research studies. We will also discuss what items/services can be billed to Medicare/third party payers and how to appropriately code these claims. Course attendees will practice using the Medicare Coverage Analysis Worksheet to determine if a clinical research study qualifies for coverage.
Audience: If you work as an investigator, administrator, coordinator, coding or billing specialist, or have a role that involves ordering any protocol-required clinical services that are intended to be billed to patients/third party payers, this course is for you!
Learning Objectives: As a result of participation in this activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply Medicare clinical research policy and device policy to determine if a study “qualifies” for coverage of “routine costs”.
- Complete a Medicare Coverage Analysis Worksheet.
- Assign Medicare codes to covered clinical service.
