Product Description

Capture the Correct Codes to Increase Reimbursement in 2019


Just when you thought you understood “new” versus “established” patient, the CPT® definition is changing again. Plus, CMS is cracking down on supporting Level 4 and 5 Evaluation and Management (E&M) codes, with capturing a 99211 visit under audit scrutiny. You’ll face all this and more in 2019!

In this session, cardiology coding expert Terry Fletcher will instruct you on the new CPT® definitions, tell you what’s in store for E&M auditing in 2019, and bring you up to speed with the changes in non-invasive cardiology coding. Find out what “same specialty or subspecialty” means and how to pass an audit when reporting E&M and a diagnostic on the same date. Explore the potential disconnect between Medicare and CPT® in the auditing process, and dive into the medical decision-making (MDM) to make sure you’re capturing the correct code for maximum reimbursement.

After attending this session, you’ll walk away with the tools and the knowledge you need to master your cardiology CPT® and E&M coding in 2019. Get audit tools, cardiology specialty-specific E&M examples, and concrete guidance on using modifiers with E&M codes and diagnostics. Gain confidence in your E&M coding for cardiology, so you can train your physicians, avoid denials, and maximize payments.
