Incident-To & Split/Shared Billing Course


The Incident-To & Split/Shared Billing course is designed for certified coders, billers, and clinic staff who are looking to stay up-to-date with incident-to and split/shared billing.

In the world of evaluation and management coding, few topics draw more questions than when to bill a patient encounter as incident-to or split/shared. By nature, these two services are closely related, so the line between them is often difficult to see. It is crucial to understand when to bill for each one, as Medicare is quick to intervene the moment they see a claim has been misreported.

The training format is online and self-paced with video and full instructor-support. A CEU certificate will be issued upon completion.
