Product Description

Avoid These Top Audit Areas With Well Developed Acuity Criteria To Help Improve Your Bottom Line

Urgent care centers treat a wide range of urgent and, often, emergent problems.  Now, Medicare proposes to collapse the five E/M levels into one payment level for all E/M services provided to Medicare patients.  Do you know how this will affect your bottom line? 

Join Caral Edelberg, CPC, CPMA, CAC, CCS-P, CHC in this informative audio session, where she will give you some important tips to help address how your levels of service are defined, the range of services you provide and how documentation can help to improve your bottom line.

Caral will provide you a sample of acuity criteria, ideas for critical data tracking, and some objective vs. subjective definitions that can make or break your coding. She will also brief you about the top audit areas to avoid with well developed acuity criteria.

Take a look at the topics covered:

  • Content of Urgent Care Facility Levels
  • Types of reporting necessary to monitor your practice
  • Why the government is  taking a closer look at Urgent Care centers
