Evaluation and management (E&M) coding has had a long and sorted history, from its roots in 1992, and CMS’ implementation of Ambulatory Payment Classifications (APCs) in 2000. Then, in 2014, CMS threw you a curveball when it instituted a single Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code – G0463 – for the 10 clinic level visits. You have all this confusion to deal with and then some when you’re tackling E&M coding for physicians and hospitals.
Learn how to improve your E&M coding in this information-packed audio conference by healthcare compliance guru Duane C. Abbey, PhD. Explore E&M coding rules for both physicians and hospitals, including documentation issues and challenges associated with auditing E&M coding. Dig deep into compliance issues and concerns for E&M coding, including the common misuse of modifier 25, along with other E&M modifiers for the global surgical package.
After attending this audio conference, you will walk away with expert audit techniques to ensure proper compliance with E&M coding rules and the tools you need to establish your own E&M coding audit program. You’ll have a solid understanding of the different guidelines for physicians and hospitals, as well as the use of G0463 and Bipartisan Budget Act (BBA) Section 603 clinics. You’ll get insights into physician coding for incident-to billing, how to make changes to accommodate now non-existent consultation codes, the challenges of using electronic health record systems for developing proper documentation to support E&M coding, and so much more.
