Hospitals respond to feds’ warning about electronic records, billing fraud

Hospitals respond to feds’ warning about electronic records, billing fraud

Hospital industry groups responded Tuesday to the warning issued by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Attorney General Eric Holder, saying that the federal government shares part of the blame, because it hasn’t provided hospitals adequate guidance on billing for common services.

Politico: Hospitals: Feds Share Billing Blame

A threat from Health and Human Services and the Department of Justice to crack down on questionable Medicare billing has drawn a fairly strong rejoinder from two major hospital groups who say federal regulators deserve part of the blame. The Association of Academic Health Centers sent a letter Tuesday to HHS and DOJ echoing complaints from the American Hospital Association that the industry doesn’t have adequate guidelines on billing for some of the most common services. The hospitals said they had repeatedly asked for such information to no avail -; and that the problem has gotten worse with the proliferation of electronic health records (Norman and Millman, 9/26).

Modern Healthcare: Groups Push Back On Federal Warning About EHRs And Billing Fraud

If hospitals’ bills to federal healthcare programs are increasing through the use of electronic health records, it may be because of improvements in documentation and a lack of national standards for gauging the intensity of some treatments, industry groups asserted in response to a critical letter from two federal agency chiefs. Healthcare groups issued those reactions swiftly after receiving a letter Monday from HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder that publicly warned hospitals it is illegal to use electronic health records to inflate bills through “false documentation.” (Carlson, 9/25).

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal reports on how a popular procedure is emerging as a driver of Medicare costs -

The Wall Street Journal: Rise In Knee Replacements Boosts Federal Health Costs

The number of knee replacements paid for by Medicare has more than doubled over the past two decades, according to a study published Tuesday that suggests the popular procedure is emerging as an important driver of costs for the nation’s health-care system (Wang, 9/25).

Are electronic medical records leading to higher medical bills?

The Center For Public Integrity: Growth Of Electronic Medical Records Eases Path To Inflated Bills

Electronic medical records, long touted by government officials as a critical tool for cutting health care costs, appear to be prompting some doctors and hospitals to bill higher fees to Medicare for treating seniors (Schulte, 9/19).

A Jet Tour of Northeast Indiana’s Medical Device Hub

A Jet Tour of Northeast Indiana’s Medical Device Hub

A Jet Tour of Northeast Indiana’s Medical Device Hub

This past week, Medgadget was invited to take a tour of Northeast Indiana, a region of ten counties surrounding and encompassing the city of Fort Wayne. You might already know about Warsaw, about 30 miles from Fort Wayne, as the headquarters for DePuy, Biomet, Zimmer, and a number of other companies that make the city the leading orthopedic device leader in the world. However, the rest of Northeast Indiana has also been evolving into a thriving medical device manufacturing hub, as labor is available, land is plentiful, and the region is very open and friendly toward the medical device manufacturing industry. In fact, according to the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, our host for the two day tour, the region has consistently been a leader in terms of dollars invested and jobs created in the industry. Over two days, we toured a number of different companies and talked to a number of executives about what makes their businesses successful and why they’re at a good place being in Northeast Indiana.

Micropulse offices A Jet Tour of Northeast Indianas Medical Device HubOur first stop was Micropulse, a contract manufacturer of implants and instruments for a number of large medical device clients. Micropulse was originally founded to produce parts for the automotive industry, but in the early 2000?s, founder and CEO Brian Emerick saw his business growing stagnant, and so he switched to medical devices and has Iotron A Jet Tour of Northeast Indianas Medical Device Hubnever looked back since. What’s interesting about Micropulse is that its facilities are also headquarters to the OrthoVation Center, a new incubator for Emerick’s other medical product ventures. The OrthoVation Center currently is home to four companies: Del Palma Orthopedics, Nanovis, BioSpine, and Sites Medical.

The next stop on our tour was a company that uses state-of-the-art technology to sterilize medical devices and other products. Vancouver-based Iotron recently opened a $15 million sterilization facility in the area and wanted to show us around.

Unlike current sterilization technologies that use gamma radiation or ethylene oxide gas, Iotron uses an electron beam for irradiation, which allows for much faster processing and greater flexibility in terms of applications, which in turn leads to lower cost for both the company and client. Electron beam technology also causes less material degradation compared to gamma radiation.

Our tour included a cool look at the electron beam generator and emitter (pictured), which is housed in the maze-like “shield”. Pretty cool stuff.

Precision Medical Technologies A Jet Tour of Northeast Indianas Medical Device HubNext, we traveled to Warsaw to visit Precision Medical Technologies, another contract manufacturer of orthopedic implants and surgical instruments. PMT has been extremely successful and is building another facility to handle their instrument manufacturing division in a neighboring county. Much of PMT’s success can be attributed to investing money in expensive, yet more sophisticated machinery that reduces the number of steps that it takes to manufacture a part, resulting in fewer variances and greater productivity. PMT also works very closely with local high schools and colleges to develop talented and experienced individuals to support the industry in the region.

Next was LH Medical, a division of LH Industries, which manufactures parts for a number of different types of businesses. Their medical division was started only about five years ago and has seen great success. Part of their vision is to manufacture all the parts that the other companies feel are too difficult or too low volume to manufacture. LH Medical also has its own team of design engineers to assist their clients in refining the design and manufacturing process.

Notre Dame Innovation Park A Jet Tour of Northeast Indianas Medical Device HubOur last stop was the campus of the University of Notre Dame to visit Innovation Park, an organization that provides facilities, funding, and other support for startups in life sciences and other industries. We had the opportunity to learn about some of the life science startups currently housed within their beautiful, new facility overlooking the Fighting Irish athletic complexes. CareX, founded by a Notre Dame management professor, is developing web-based point-of-care systems for physicians, caregivers, and extended/assisted living home nurses to track changes in their patients’ health. Altapure A Jet Tour of Northeast Indianas Medical Device Hub

Altapure, whose device we wrote about back in February, has developed a room/area sterilizer using ultrasonic technology to produce a highly dense cloud of liquid that can eliminate dangerous pathogens. F Cubed is developing and commercializing lab-on-chip technology to rapidly detect the DNA of dangerous bacteria in recreational and drinking water, food, and human fluid samples.

Overall, we got the sense that there’s a lot of innovation in the region, and we’re optimistic that, given the high rate of growth in the area, Northeast Indiana will join the ranks of the major medical hubs in the U.S.

FDA Approves New Test To Help Determine If Breast Cancer Patients Are Candidates For Herceptin Treatment

FDA Approves New Test To Help Determine If Breast Cancer Patients Are Candidates For Herceptin Treatment

Food and Drug Administration approved a new genetic test that will help health care professionals determine if women with breast cancer are HER2-positive and, therefore, candidates for Herceptin (trastuzumab), a commonly used breast cancer treatment.

The test, called Inform Dual ISH, allows for measurement of the number of copies of the HER2 gene in tumor tissue. The HER2 gene is located on chromosome 17 in human cells. An excessive amount of the protein produced by the gene is found in some types of cancer cells, including breast cancer cells

The Inform Dual ISH test allows lab personnel to count the number of copies of HER2 genes on chromosome 17 in a small sample of the breast tumor. The sample is stained with chemicals that cause copies of HER2 genes and chromosome 17 to change color. Copies of the HER2 gene appear black and copies of chromosome 17 appear red. These color changes can be seen under a standard microscope.

This feature allows lab personnel to see and count copies of chromosome 17 and HER2 genes on the same slide, similar to HER2 amplification measurements that have traditionally only been available using fluorescence microscopes. The Inform Dual ISH, however, allows lab staff to see the HER2 and chromosome 17 signals directly under a microscope, for longer periods of time.

“When used with other clinical information and laboratory tests, this test can provide health care professionals with additional insight on treatment decisions for patients with breast cancer,” said Alberto Gutierrez, Ph.D., director of the Office of In Vitro Diagnostic Device Evaluation and Safety in the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health.

The FDA based its approval of the Inform Dual ISH on a U.S. study involving tumor samples from 510 patients with breast cancer. This study showed that the test was effective in confirming that a patient’s tumor sample contained more than the normal number of copies of the HER2 gene in 96 percent of the HER2 positive tumor samples. Patients with more than the normal number of copies of the HER2 gene are considered candidates for Herceptin therapy.

The study also showed that the test was effective at excluding the possibility that more than the normal number of copies of the HER2 gene were present in 92.3 percent of the HER2 negative tumor samples. Patients who do not have more than the normal number of copies of the HER2 gene are typically not candidates for Herceptin therapy. The ability to identify patients who are HER2-positive is a useful tool for physicians who may be considering treatment with Herceptin for their breast cancer patients.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women. An estimated 207,090 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in the United States during 2010 and about 39,840 women died from the disease, according to the National Cancer Institute. About 20 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer are HER2-positive

emphysema claims aren’t being fully reimbursed?why

Want to know why your emphysema claims aren’t being fully reimbursed? Often, the reason is that you’re lacking two things when you submit your claim. You aren’t being detailed enough with your coding and your don’t have enough detailed medical documenation to back up your full diagnostic testing that is required to accurately diagnose emphysema and narrow the degree and type. When you’re compiling the medical billing for an established patient with active emphysema (492.8, Other emphysema) and they present and are complaining of shortness of breath (786.05); the physician provides inhalation treatment, trains the patient on using the nebulizer at home, and provides an expanded problem-focused examination and medical decision-making of low complexity, how would you report this?

There will be multiple codes for this visit as the emphysema was the reason for the visit however the physician also provided services and consulted regarding the nebulizer so there will need to be additional codings on the medical billing to take all the services rendered into consideration.

Be sure and capture 94640 (Pressurized or nonpressurized inhalation treatment for acute airway obstruction or for sputum induction for diagnostic purposes [e.g., with an aerosol generator, nebulizer, metered-dose inhaler or intermittent positive pressure breathing (IPPB) device]) to cover the comprehensive service the physician provided regarding using the nebulizer. Additionally, add in 99213, and back it up with documentation to show that the physician performed an exam of an existing problem with low- complexity decision-making.

If your documentation shows that the physicians’s primary intent was to treat the difficulty in breathing at the time of the visit, switch to 94640(Demonstration and/or evaluation of patient utilization of an aerosol generator, nebulizer, metered dose inhaler or IPPB device).

It’s important to always show if the emphysema is currently active at the time so further claims can use that diagnosis as part of the history where applicable.

medical billing companies

The word “outsourcing” has become a dirty word for many physicians that have been burned by medical billing companies that either outsourced their claims to medical billing companies that use neither secure networks nor adhere to HIPAA regulation in order to maximize their profits; or the outsourcing company just turned out to not be reliable and it wound up costing the practice money to utilize their services.

Don’t let a bad experience keep you from partnering with a legitimate medical billing company that can not only help you get your reimbursements faster but also realize great profits by maximizing every single medical billing claim that is filed to make sure that all services and procedures are counted by the carrier and reimbursed.
