E/M coding is probably the most frequently billed physician service, and it seems to be getting a lot of attention lately from auditors, enforcers and whistleblowers. According to CMS, providers improperly billed $3.9 billion in E/M claims in fiscal year 2014, where claims were submitted at the wrong levels. Some of the common E/M errors include insufficient documentation, no physician authentication or wrong place of service.
Join expert speaker Elin Baklid-Kunz, MBA, CHC, CPC, CPMA, CCS, in this informative session to get insights on the common E/M coding mistakes, including the “dirty dozen” of EM coding. She will also discuss current E/M trends, compliance concerns, reduced payments, and share tips to ensure correct coding and payment the first time. In addition, she will also review the MACs prepayment of high level EM Services.
