An ad I received yesterday. A glimpse at hospital billing for those of you unfamiliar. I think I'd better buy the one with the answer key! (That's me in the chair to the right after a briefing on these matters by my CFO . . .)
The Official Guide for Enhanced Revenue Cycle Management
The first textbook that helps HIM professionals, college instructors and students understand the differences between the UB-04 and the UB-92 and provides a global view of how the billing function should work in conjunction with the coding department. The Handbook provides accurate and timely information about the UB-04 and explains how and why ICD-9, CPT and HCPCS code conventions must be integrated with UB-04, HCFA-1450 and CMS-1450 billing conventions. It enables hospitals and other health care provider organizations to maximize claim processing performance and revenue recovery and better manage their revenue cycle process.
The Handbook shows how to complete a facility UB-04 billing form, and contains vignettes that explain the billing office process, its components and reporting nuances. It contains 65 quizzes that can be used for self-testing, for performance evaluations or classwork assignments.
The UB-04 Handbook will help HIM staff understand that coding conventions for billing are as important as ICD-9 coding conventions when sending a claim to an insurance company or payer and ensure that members of accounting, admitting, quality management departments understand how their contributions to the revenue cycle must be translated by billers to fit changing UB-04 Form Locator codes.
