Product Description

Are you getting the ortho consultation reimbursement you deserve?

E/M coding for orthopedics can be confusing at best, especially when you're struggling with documentation guidelines. Which guidelines should you use to determine the level of E/M service to bill? How can you figure out whether all of the services provided to the patient are medically necessary? Get the answers to these questions and much more during this 1-hour web conference with expert presenter Becky Zellmer, CPC, CBCS, MBS.

Here's what you will learn:

  • How to educate physicians about medical necessity guidelines without offending them.
  • 1995 versus 1997 E/M Guidelines -- which is better for your ortho practice?
  • Get optimal reimbursement by appending these modifiers to your E/M services.
  • Determine the medical necessity restrictions for review of systems and examinations.
  • Clear up consultation confusion -- how to figure out is it a consult or not?

Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.
