Product Description

Understand the E/M Coding Guidelines for Denial Proof Claims and Maximized Ethical Reimbursement

The 1997 Evaluation and Management guidelines were supposedly created to give documentation guidelines to specialists whose examination may have a primary focus on a specific system.  It is confusing at times to determine whether or not these guidelines are appropriate for the specialists, or should they be utilizing the 1995 Evaluation and Management guidelines instead.

Furthermore, for many providers, the 1995 E/M Guidelines most closely aligns with a provider’s actual clinical practice and gets optimal reimbursement. Still a lot of coding professionals, auditors, and physicians are still reluctant to use these guidelines, wary of the various aspects of these guidelines that require a bit of interpretation or judgment.

Our expert presenter Lynn Anderanin, CPC, CPC-I, COSC, will review both acceptable sets of Evaluation and Management Guidelines in this healthcare training session. You get the answers to the common questions that arise from these guidelines and expert coding tips to know what to look for when determining what works in your office.

You also get expert guidance on what to look for in an audit form to meet the needs for those guidelines. Plus, there is also public information available to create the bell curve for reported levels of service for your specialty.

Here’s just a sample of what you’ll learn:

  • Review the 10 specialty specific Evaluation and Management Guidelines of 1997.
  • Evaluate the 1995 E/M Guidelines to confirm how they can work for any specialty
  • Determine what to look for in an audit form and how that can be used as an education tool.
  • Know the  importance for reporting the correct place of service and its effect on reimbursement
  • Learn how to use public information to compare your providers to their peers.
