Transfusion physicians, technologists, managers, and support staff need to have at least a basic understanding billing and coding procedures. Those who are responsible for maintaining appropriate billing and coding need to keep up with the constantly changing expectations for coding and billing. This session is designed to provide a comprehensive review of current coding and reimbursement information, including critical updates, as well as share best practices from hospitals. AABB staff will also discuss Medicare advocacy and resources to help hospitals ensure they receive appropriate payment.
