Product Description

Avoid Revenue Compromise with This Expert Guidance on Professional/Physician Coding for the ED

Can you distinguish the difference between codeable physician services versus facility services?

Emergency department coding is exceptionally challenging because coders for ED services must have a comprehensive understanding of physician coding to guarantee accuracy and completeness. Also, both coders and physicians need to understand the documentation requirements.

Want to know what are some of the most controversial areas for ED physician coding to ensure successful claims and increased reimbursement? Join this audio event, presented by our medical coding and billing training professional Marsha S. Diamond, who will provide practical tips to simplify your physician coding for the ED. Marsha will also address the charge capturing techniques for assuring all billable/codeable services are captured by the practice. Plus, she’ll enlighten on the preparedness for the third party audit.

As consistency is of utmost importance in the assignment of E& M levels, Marsha will use E/M tool in her demonstration to explain how to perform consistent chart audits and E & M level assignments.  E/M tool also provides a validation of the level assigned in the event of an audit as well as a recording of the rationale utilized in arriving at the E/M level for the practice’s records.

Here are a few highlights of the session:
