Product Description

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


Used on a daily basis by physicians, evaluation and management (E/M) codes are the most targeted codes in audits by Medícare and contract auditors. While CPT® provides plenty of guidelines for E/M services, this is still one of the most confusing areas of coding.  To ensure that your physicians are reimbursed properly and fully for services they perform and to avoid any red flags for auditors, it’s important that you know how to code for E/M services.

Join our expert speaker Melody S. Irvine, in this webinar, where she will review the most commonly-asked questions from coders, billers and physicians regarding E/M coding. With tips that are not identified in CPT®, Melody will clearly explain how to properly use E/M codes according to Medícare rules and regulations. You will also get examples of how to code and properly document your coding.
