Historically E/M coding professionals have been instructed to use either the 1995 or 1997 documentation guidelines, not a combination of the two. However, recently there have been changes to this guideline. These changes have encouraged insurance carriers from increasing post payments reviews and audits. For providers, it’s imperative to know what works best in obtaining the maximum reimbursement while meeting medical necessity requirements.
Musculoskeletal specialties in addition have their own unique set of criteria for the new E/M guidelines, which also includes a musculoskeletal system examination. In today’s regulatory environment where the auditor’s motto should be “Not documented, not done”, auditors should know what to look out for in complete documentation of musculoskeletal visits.
Join expert speaker Lynn Anderanin CPC, CPPM, CPC-I, COSC, in a Live Audio Conference, where she will discuss E/M coding and auditing for musculoskeletal specialties and show what works best in order to obtain the maximum reimbursement while meeting medical necessity requirements. In addition, Lynn will provide a list of common tests performed in a musculoskeletal examination and know where they should be valued in the examination elements.
