  • Legislative Update: Health Care Bills Progress in Springfield

    Your ISMS legislative team has been hard at work in Springfield, advocating on your behalf by thwarting bad proposals from moving forward and negotiating sensible changes to various bills.

    This past week held an important procedural deadline for both the Illinois Senate and the Illinois House – the last window for committee review of bills.

    Despite the difficulties of passing legislation during an election year, ISMS has succeeded in helping advance these bills out of committee prior to today's deadline.

  • Avoid Claim Denials for Procedures and E/M Services – Performed on SAME Day

    Getting nowhere on reimbursements for certain services delivered during the same encounter?

    For example, say your patient came in for a minor/office-based procedure. And on that same day, the patient’s condition required a completely separate evaluation and management (E/M) service, beyond the preoperative or post-operative care usually associated with that procedure

    CMS and other insurers may deny claims for these services.
