CodeMap® 03/13/09: The Terminology of Reimbursement



CodeMap® Radiology Briefing: 03/13/2009

Editor's Welcome:

As promised, this week's CodeMap Radiology Briefing will continue our examination of the terminology associated with Medicare coding, reimbursement, and coverage. As you will remember, on March 13, we began this series of briefings by providing definitions and accompanying explanations of many of the basic coding terms employed by providers and payers participating in federally funded health care programs. This week, we will take a look at the vocabulary often associated with Medicare reimbursement systems. 

Hopefully, by the end of this briefing our subscribers will obtain a better understanding of such terms as prospective payment systems, fee-for-service payment systems,....
