ABOUT THE CHURCHILL NEWSLETTER
Churchill Consulting offers a QUARTERLY newsletter service to keep you current with the changes in billing codes, terminology and descriptions of use. A 'standard' Newsletter subscription entitles you to six (6) coding questions or inquiries per subscription period.
Churchill Consulting's Newsletter is guaranteed QUARTERLY, but the average number of Newsletters per year eight.
Newsletters topics will include coding information from CMS and expert rulings on proper CPT usage. Because Churchill Consulting offers Quality Improvement Programs, our newsletters also include relevant information from JCAHO, ACR, OSHA and the EPA.
Coding questions must be submitted to Churchill Consulting via the 'client login' option, available on the toolbar above. A Client ID and password (provided with your subscription) is required to access your account. Your account is private, but may be viewed by anyone in your organization who you provide your Client ID and password to. You will be notified via e-mail when Churchill Consulting has responded to your question. Each question will include a 'reference number.' You will be able to view all coding questions and answers that have been submitted to Churchill Consulting and posted to your private account.
Phone-support will count toward your allowable number of billing questions. If phone support is required, you must schedule a teleconference time. All teleconferences are counted as 'inquiries', which are deducted from your subscription account. An 'inquiry' is defined as a 10-minute telephone consultation. A 20-minute telephone consultation will count as two inquiries. Summaries of the inquiries will be posted as a question in your account by Churchill Consulting. Please use 800.304.0224 for telephone support.
All opinions, as published in our newsletters are, are the sole opinions of the editor and contributing authors and may not carry any authority beyond the publication. Nothing in the newsletters constitutes law of CMS policy. Churchill Consulting assumes no liability for its interpretation of current procedural terminology codes (CPT) published by the American Medical Association.

Corporate Newsletter Option:
A Corporate Newsletter subscription is available for billing companies, groups, or vendors who are interested in staying current with coding. The corporate subscription provides full access to all Newsletters within the subscription period. Vendors are allowed to share the information within the organization and with the sales team. Newsletters may be shown to outside groups, i.e., prospective clients, but not distributed to persons outside of the organization.
Corporate coding support is available in addition to the Newsletters. A ‘Vendor Account’ will be established on the Churchill Consulting web page and the vendor can direct persons of their choice to submit coding questions. The responses to all coding questions will be entered into the Vendor Account, resulting in a complete Q&A forum that Vendor can direct persons or groups of their choice to share, view the responses, and/or enter questions.
Please refer to the Corporate Order Form for complete details.
