Nothing could be farther from the truth because the new benefit is not the exam performed by the majority of ob/gyns across the country. And if you bill or document this one incorrectly you could be opening your practice up to take backs and unhappy patients.
In this session you will get the facts about what the annual wellness visit includes and does not include, with an eye to comparing it to normal ob/gyn annual visit care. As with most practices, you will need to decide if you want to provide this new service, and if not, how to inform your patients so they can get the benefit elsewhere. In this session you will find out how to approach the topic with your patients, and how to choose the right option for you and your patient to ensure continuing quality preventive care.
Take a look at what’s covered:
Who should attend? Coder, billers, practice managers, physicians, non-physician practitioners.
