Live Webinar | Billing and Coding for Social Workers: Keeping Up with a Changing Practice
Wednesday, September 22, 2021, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT
Category: Webinars

Social Workers are an integral part of the interdisciplinary palliative care team. With the onset of the pandemic, growing demand for their skills and resources, and changes to rules for reimbursements, social workers find themselves trying to understand what does this all mean for their practice and their patients. As part of a follow-up to her course on “Optimizing Advance Care Planning Billing and Coding for Palliative Care Social Workers”, Torrie Fields will share what’s new and what trends to watch and prepare for.

Torrie will present about the growing importance of social workers in the future of palliative care, how telehealth is changing the scope of palliative care social work practice, and key differences between LCSW and MSW, and what does this means for billing and coding for social workers. 

This event will provide ample time for the audience to ask Torrie questions on:

  • Advocating for the value of social work in palliative care
  • Interdisciplinary care teams
  • Value-based care models
  • New policy and payment models
  • The future of palliative social work
