Product Description

Take the guesswork out of the situation and be compliant with your documentation and claims submission.

Internal medicine physicians provide care for patients with a variety of illnesses.  The type of care and procedures they administer to these patients can be complex and confusing in getting the billing and documentation done in a compliant manner.

If that wasn’t hard enough there are GREY areas in coding and billing that each office needs to take a position on.  Where is your comfort zone for grey area decisions and how well will you survive an audit of that area?

Join Jill Young for this 1-hour audio conference where she will define situations where the rules are not black and white and discern where your decision making on the topic lies.

Take a look at what's covered:

  • E&M code selection based on counseling and coordination of care time is fairly straight forward.  What needs to be in the note  for the care is a bit gray.
  • Critical care guidelines are fairly extensive but do not cover all situations leaving some grey areas in this code set’s use
  • Modifier 59 should only be used in certain circumstances but some situations made the decision on whether or not to use this highly audited modifier grey.
  • Office services , when is it appropriate to use modifier 25 and when is it a shade of grey
  • Medical necessity a nebulous term – how can you define it better in the documentation]
  • We’ll leave lots of time for your tough grey area questions.
  • supervision of  tests, where can you find good information on who can provide supervision and who can bill for the test.

Who should attend? Coders and billers, Office managers, physicians.
