Get Proper CPT® Coding, Billing and Documentation Guidelines for E/M Services

E/M codes are used on a daily basis and are the most targeted codes by Medicare and contract auditors. Also, there are many guidelines in CPT® for E/M coding that make it confusing. However, to make sure that your physicians are reimbursed properly and fully for services they perform and avoid any red flags, it’s important that they are aware of these guidelines.

This session by expert speaker Melody Irvine will review the most commonly asked questions with E/M coding. Some of the tips provided in this session (not identified in CPT®) will provide you information on how to properly use E/M codes according to Medicare rules and regulations. You will also get examples of how to code and proper documentation to support them.

This session is based on the most frequently asked questions from coders, billers and physicians on how to use the codes, and most importantly how to document the information to support the codes billed.
