Neurology Nuts and Bolts: Constructing Your Career, Finances of Practice: Inpatient Billing

Listen here to Neurology Nuts and Bolts: Constructing Your Career, a podcast from Creator and Executive Producer Sara Schaefer MD MHS about all the things that you wish you were taught about the practice of neurology. The podcast covers types of careers, contracts and worth, promotional development and CV building, continuing medical education and maintenance of certification, visas, billing and coding, challenges on the job, work/life balance, and more.

Originally released: July 10, 2023

Sara Schaefer gets into the weeds of inpatient billing and coding with Dr. Marc Nuwer, Neurophysiology Department Head at UCLA and member of the CPT and Relative Value Update Committee (RUC) Advisory Panels, and Dr. Inna Keselman, Associate Professor of Clinical Neurophysiology and Neurology Quality Officer at UCLA. They discuss coding "families," CPT codes, new vs. subsequent encounters, diagnostic codes and levels of service- a great primer for moving into the inpatient space and maximizing your yield on billing.

We believe that the principles expressed or implied in the podcast remain valid, but certain details may be superseded by evolving knowledge since the episode’s original release date.
