The Business Side of Bariatric Endoscopy – Coding and Reimbursement (On-Demand) | November 2018

This recording of a one-hour webinar will provide your practice with a current look into the top coding and reimbursement issues impacting bariatric endoscopy and the tips and solutions for economic survival. Learning how to ask the appropriate questions, working with your institution to obtain coverage for your patients, and providing options when coverage is denied, are the keys to success.

This is an excellent resource for physicians/providers, managers, coders, schedulers, preauthorization/utilization review coordinators, and clinical staff members.

The original webinar was held November 29, 2018.

Learning Objectives
This webinar will address the following questions and give clarity on these coding items:

  • Coding and reimbursement- what do these mean and why are they important?
  • Packaging your practice and options
  • Obtaining coverage for a patient when coverage is rejected

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Because all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, it is not always practical to point to a particular browser as "better" than another. Because browsers are free, you can easily shift from one to another for various purposes. Whatever browser you are using, here are some tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
