Product Description

Don't let ED coding rob you of appropriate reimbursement.

Coding in the ED can be overwhelming. And determining who did what and when can be nearly impossible, especially when other specialists are involved in ED care and documentation isn’t clear.

Join Caral Edelberg, CPC, CCS-P, CHC for this 1-hour audio session to get into the nitty-gritty of the wide range of medical, diagnostic and surgical services ED providers use to care for their patients. You'll get the in-depth knowledge about the codes, the modifiers and how to use both when ED physicians provide only a portion of the ED care.

Caral will help you review common surgical procedures performed in the ED but often under-documented. Plus: She will discuss methods to use in collaborating with ED staff to improve the procedure coding process.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Many low volume procedures actually account for significant revenue. Here's how to accurately code when they are performed.
  • Coding for E/M services and surgical procedures performed during the same visit require a knowledge of the surgical package.
  • CPT and Medicare rules for surgical procedures are not always the same… correctly code for the services performed.
