Product Description

Should we be capturing TCM or Chronic Care Codes for Cardiology? Find the answer HERE

Documentation and coding for E/M services is considered tricky for a cardiology practice. Although, there are various EHRs offering coding tips for E/M services, this should not be a substitute for the physician’s code selection.

2015 has brought a new change to Cardiology. There is now a new specialty designation taxonomy code C3, that a physician may now choose when they self-designate their specialty on Medicare enrollment applications and PECOS applications. This new “sub-specialty” of Cardiology is for CMS claims processing purposes.

Join cardiology coding expert Terry Fletcher, BS, CPC, CCC, CEMC, SCP-CA, ACS-CA, CCS-P, CCS, CMSCS, CMC in this informative session to get insights on the new changes in E/M auditing and documentation to cardiology in 2015.

In this session, you will get answers to the following and more:

  • What does "same specialty or subspecialty" mean?
  • Are you supporting your level 4's and 5's? How to ensure you're compliant?
  • When is an H&P appropriate to bill?
  • When can you capture a 99211 visit and what are the elements needed to pass an audit?
  • Medicare and CPT® — is there a disconnect on the auditing?
  • Should we be capturing TCM or Chronic Care Codes for Cardiology?

Terry will also share audit tools, E/M examples on cardiology specialty, and audit software options for your benefit.
