    Very few topics generate as much perpetual debate on how to interrogate and surgically manage the N0 neck in the field of head and neck oncology. Over a century of clinical experience, retrospective studies and a small number of clinical trials have helped elucidate general principles for management. Yet many questions remain to be answered, particularly as OMSs attempt to move toward narrowing the gap between under treatment and over treatment. During this 60-minute webinar, participants will review the current evidence regarding surgical management, where knowledge gaps remain and the latest research efforts to fill those gaps. Preoperative imaging and tests to elucidate the clinical status of the lymph nodes will be discussed in addition the roles for observation, sentinel lymph node biopsy and elective neck dissection for the cN0 neck – all based on the latest evidence.

    Learn how to correctly understand and properly apply the rules governing coordination of benefits and non-covered services during this 90-minute webinar. When your OMS practice learns how to accurately navigate these rules, staff time can be better spent supporting patients instead of dealing with insurance companies. There also exists the potential for significantly greater reimbursements and overall practice revenue. Without knowing which services are covered, when such services are covered and the pre-operative requirements for coverage, your practice’s financial standing can be negatively impacted. Insurers/carriers can deny non-covered services as well as covered services for which pre-operative conditions were allegedly not satisfied. Participants in this webinar will learn how to determine whether services are covered and the appropriate steps are followed to create a more efficient practice with stronger patient satisfaction when they do not have to incur undue charges. It is difficult to collect reimbursement when you do not know the appropriate party to charge and from whom to seek such payment. For this reason, a comprehensive understanding of the coordination of benefit rules – in particular the rules set forth in patient plans and governing their coverage – is imperative. With such knowledge, your practice will be able to better understand who is primarily responsible for payment, to what extent, and the processes you need to go through to secure the reimbursement that you have surely earned. Participants in this webinar will listen to Thomas J. Force, an attorney and owner of a successful medical billing company specializing in these aspects, share his knowledge as well as techniques to ensure the most efficient and profitable operation.

    The No Surprises Act has partially become effective following a chaotic and incomplete implementation process. During this 90-minute webinar, participants will learn what aspects of the Act that practices, providers and facilities are expected to comply with immediately – such as required disclosures and postings, and how and when to balance bill insured patients. The webinar will cover which aspects will not be enforced (or at least will not be completely enforced) such as the requirement to provide a good faith estimate to uninsured/self-pay patients. Attendees also will get an update on the status of the case brought by the AMA and AHA, among others, against the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury, which centers around the current version of the regulations regarding calculation of the out-of-network reimbursement rate.
