Now that Physicians cannot bill Medicare for consultations how will they get paid for patient care? Capture's medical billing video explains how in easy to understand terms.

Washington, DC (Vocus) December 15, 2009 -- On January 1, 2010 Medicare will eliminate consultation codes. These codes are what healthcare providers submit to Medicare for reimbursement when a patient is seen for a medical consultation, whether in a provider’s office or hospital setting. Healthcare providers, coders and medical billers will have to learn new ways to code for these services.

Capture Billing and Consulting, Inc., a medical billing and coding company, helps keep healthcare professionals informed and up to date on the latest coding and billing specifications and regulations. With its newest release of the "Medical Billing Minute" video, Capture Billing hopes to educate physicians on how to code in the aftermath of the elimination for the Medicare consultation codes.

By the use of straight forward graphics, Capture Billing makes this complex issue easy to understand. This video, just out, is already being used to educate physicians and billing staffs in offices around the country.
