Oral and maxillofacial surgeons may need to be away from their practices for a variety of reasons. Circumstances such as conferences, vacations and sick leave do not have to lead to a decrease in patients seen at a practice or require an office to close. During this 60-minute webinar, participants will review locum tenens/fee-for-time and reciprocal arrangements to help keep an office operating during an absence.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
• Explain fee-for-time/locum tenens compensation arrangements.
• Define reciprocal billing.
• Discuss various payer guidelines for fee-for-time arrangements
and/or reciprocal billing.
• Review CMS documentation requirements for fee-for-time
• Describe modifier guidelines.
• Apply tips for fee-for-time and reciprocal billing agreements.
