So, we commissioned our own documentary to help tell the story of the people who live here day in and day out.”

Set against a backdrop of Atlanta’s many sides – from downtown to the suburbs and beyond – Church’s Loves Atlanta features real voices of the community and the ever-evolving culture of the urban experience. A history of music, education, civil rights, and, of course, food are all highlighted in the short film, with meaningful commentary from long-time residents and city leaders.

“We are proud to support the eighth annual BronzeLens event,” Reese added. “Church’s is excited to showcase the people, places, and stories that make Atlanta a city of hope and triumph. This film is our gift to the city.”

Culinary Union Says Buyers Beware: Amidst Growing Labor Dispute, A Fair Process and Worker Retention at Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas are Hot Issues

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Culinary Workers Union Local 226 is gearing up to demand a fair process that will assure an opportunity for the Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas’ housekeepers, food servers, cooks, and other non-union workers to decide whether they want union representation in an atmosphere that is free from management pressure tactics. Workers says that job retention is a critical concern to them in the event the property’s owner, Brookfield Asset Management, sells the property.

“Workers deserve a fair process that is free from threats, intimidation, and interference to determine whether they want to unionize,” said Geoconda Argüello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer for the Culinary Union. “The vast majority of casino employers in Las Vegas have agreed to this fair process allowing workers to make their own choices and build a better future for themselves, their families, and our entire city.”

Workers say a fair chance to decide on unionization can help assure that the casino’s owner, Brookfield Asset Management, follows the path of nearly all major casino employers in Las Vegas by ensuring the property’s workers are retained in the course of a sale. The Culinary Union, which represents 57,000 workers in nearly all of Las Vegas’ Strip and downtown casinos, has worked to ensure worker retention is the standard for the Las Vegas gaming industry.

“Throughout the years we have been joined by clergy, political leaders, and community leaders to call on owners and buyers to ensure the lives of workers and their families are not turned upside down when properties change hands,” said Geoconda Argüello-Kline. “Owners come and go, but these workers have put down roots in our community and their families depend on them. If a majority of Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas workers choose to unionize, they will have a way to fight for these protections too.” 

Las Vegas casinos typically retain the bulk of hourly workers in the event of a change in ownership. This best practice has prevailed even when there is not a union agreement. After the following transactions, workers were retained without being required to reapply:

  • Station Casinos’s acquisition of the Palms in 2016
  • Boyd’s purchase of Aliante and the Cannery casinos in 2016
  • Blackstone’s acquisition of the Cosmopolitan in 2014
  • Station Casinos LLC emergence from bankruptcy reorganization in 2011
  • The Aladdin’s sale and rebranding to Planet Hollywood in 2007
  • Harrah’s purchase of Imperial Palace in 2005
  • Boyd’s purchase of the Coast properties in 2004
  • Station Casinos’ purchase of The Reserve (renamed Fiesta Henderson) in 2010
  • Harrah’s purchase of The Rio in 1998

Boost Your NPP Reimbursement by 15% with Incident to and Stay Off of Auditor Hit Lists

Leveraging incident to billing for your Non-Physician Practitioner (NPP) services is a great way to increase your revenue by as much as 15%.

NAPLES, Fla.Aug. 23, 2017PRLog — Leveraging incident to billing for your Non-Physician Practitioner (NPP) services is a great way to increase your revenue by as much as 15%.

If you do it right, your NPPs can receive payments for their services at the same rate as your physicians (vs. the normal 85%). On the flip side, one slip-up while navigating the stringent Medicare rules governing incident to can leave you paying thousands in penalties and fines.

But, with a solid plan in place, this is a reimbursement opportunity that your practice can’t afford to overlook.

Who Qualifies to Bill Incident to?
Before you even begin thinking about billing incident to services, you must have a firm handle on which NPPs Medicare deems as qualified. According to the latest guidelines, the following practitioners are eligible: https://codingleader.com/blogs/compliancepop/boost-your-npp-reimbursement-with-incident-to

Audit Hotspot: Medicare requires that all your NPPs providing incident to services be properly licensed in the same state in which you practice medicine. If you fail to comply with this rule you can not only be guilty of filing false claims, but may also land in hot water with the Office of the Attorney General for fraud.

What you can do: Request that your NPPs provide you with a copy of their license and validate it with the appropriate licensing authority. Most licensing boards now make this verification process easy with quick access directly from their websites. You only need to enter the NPP’s license number and first and last name to verify the licensing status.

What Services are Eligible for Incident to Billing?
Medicare ONLY allows NPPs to bill incident to if they are treating a patient based on a plan of care that a physician within your practice has initiated. For example, if a patient is seen by your physician for  treatment of seasonal allergies, and your physician documents a plan of care, your NPP may see the patient for subsequent visits for their allergies and bill the visit incident to the physician plan at 100% of the Physician Fee Schedule rate.

Audit Hotspot: If a patient sees an NPP for a new problem, even if they are an existing patient, the service CANNOT be billed as incident to. Instead the service would have to be billed under the NPP’s own NPI number. This is a massive focus area for many auditors and will lead to repayments.

What you can do: Document each patient visit thoroughly and have it reviewed by the patient’s physician before billing to ensure that treatments for new complaints are not billed as incident to. Also, try getting the reason for the patient’s visit during scheduling. If the primary reason for the visit is not follow-up care to prior treatment, consider making the appointment with the patient’s primary physician. For more on when to bill under the NPP name vs. under incident-to, check out this free downloadable incident to decision tree (https://codingleader.com/products/npp-tool).

What are the Supervision Requirements?
Medicare specifies that your NPP must be under the direct supervision of an on-premise physician at the time of care to qualify for incident to billing. The supervising physician does not have to be the patient’s primary physician, but it should be a physician who is familiar with the patient’s medical history and is capable of offering any necessary assistance.

Audit Hotspot: While some states allow NPPs to practice medicine under general supervision (meaning the physician does not have to be on premise at the time of care), Medicare requires direct supervision for incident to billing. If you get these two requirements confused and bill under incident to without meeting the direct supervision requirement you’ll quickly find yourself under audit scrutiny.

What you can do: Coach NPPs to verify and document the physician’s physical location at the time of service. And, if documentation does not exist, you should not bill the service under incident to. You can get more practical tips for staying of CMS’s audit radar in Incident-To Coding Strategies 2017 (https://codingleader.com/products/incident-to-report1).

Take Aways

Check Licenses: Make sure your NPPs have valid licenses in your state so that you don’t end up facing fraud charges.
Validate Patient’s Chief Complaint: Double-check the patient’s chief complaint during the visit and whether it was related to a previous service to be sure that your NPP’s time qualifies for incident to billing.
Document Physician Location: Train NPPs to verify and document the physician’s location at the time of service to ensure that you don’t violate Medicare’s direct supervision requirement.

Many providers swear off incident to billing altogether, claiming that it’s too much administrative hassle. But, with just a little training and some solid policies, incident to billing is a great way to boost your reimbursement.

Check out this online training (https://codingleader.com/pages/incident-to-11) by Kim Garner Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO to learn strategies to ethically maximize your NPP reimbursement and ensure you stay off the auditor’s hit list.
