Evaluation and Management coding is critical in making sure that your practice is paid appropriately and in avoiding the risk of audits. Providers need to know how the documentation of a visit relates to the level of evaluation and management, and coders need to know how to communicate the information to their providers.
In this webinar, expert speaker Cathy Jennings, BS, CPC, CPC-I, CEDC, CHONC, AHIMA Approved ICD-10 Trainer will review documentation guidelines, the role of EMRs in E/M coding, and medical decision making for internal medicine providers. Learn about the basics of the 1995 Documentation Guidelines, which is most used in internal medicine by CMS in determining a level of service.
Also, find out what commercial and government payors are looking for in the provider’s documentation and the complications of using an EMR to select your evaluation and management codes. Proper documentation and the assignment of an E/M level can be complicated, but Cathy will break down the components of this category of codes in this session to simplify the work.
