Product Description

Sometimes your coding should be the same as the hospital's.

With the ED being the most heavily affected hospital department under APCs, you must be up-to-date on the 2008 changes. From fractures and strapping to injections and infusions, you have lots of special challenges to tackle under the new Medicare outpatient prospective payment system.

Make sure you're armed and ready to bring in the reimbursement you deserve this year by joining expert speaker Duane C. Abbey, PhD, CFP, for this 90-minute teleconference. In addition to learning the latest coding challenges, you'll gain a clearer understanding of the new interface for the ED to observation services under APCs.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • When ED MD coding = APC coding is OK.
  • The interplay between professional and technical component coding/billing in the ED.
  • Dying to know how observation services interface between settings? You'll find out!
  • The scoop on E/M level coding and its relationship to the EMTALA mandated medical screening examination (MSE).
  • Winning documentation processes you can put to use right away.
  • Work through difficult ED coding scenarios: E/Ms, surgical care and more.
  • Important info on special issues, including Type B EDs under Medicare and special use of NPPs for CAHs.
