Quote from chargemaster
I am working on an internet chargemaster database and I am looking for resources to add for coding alerts, chargemaster items, compliance and reimbursement. Any ideas for a one stop shopping resource?
Thanks for any input that you might have.
Hi there. I deal with many issues of finance, coding, charging and documentation. I am actually going to be presenting a power point presentation about the chargemaster mainentance process (as opposed to the review process - that's a different thing). I deal with finance people all the time. There is no one-stop shopping resource as there are many helpful places. I am in the process of compiling an internet list, but here are some things that are important: CPT and HCPCS coding manuals, CCI edits (on the government web site), the gov't web site for both inpatient & outpt issues, UB-Editor for all your billing info, Hospital Chargemaster Guide by Ingenix, Transmittals and bulletins by Medicare, Medlearn Matters web site, fiscal intermediary web sites, google, Medicare manuals
Lots and lots.
I was director of Utilization Management and case management and worked closely with finance people and clinical people on charging issues, cost issues, etc.
