Product Description

Final PFS Rule Mandates Documentation Changes in Office Services: Are You Ready for Jan 1, 2019?

Changes to documentation of the history and exam are looming for 2019–2021. As a healthcare provider, you need to be prepared for these changes. You should know under what narrow situations the changes are allowed, the changes to the payment structure effective January 1, 2019, and other key changes that will help ensure compliance and lead to increased reimbursements in 2019.

Get up to speed with the changes to the documentation and payment structure for office E&M services in this informative audio conference by healthcare expert Jill Young. Young will walk you through the changes made to documentation of the history and exam; payment changes to office E&M services; new add-on codes for E&M services (prolonged care and complexity); new codes for Store and Forward and Virtual Check-in services; and the respective timelines for the implementation of all these changes.

Attending this conference will prepare you for the changes in documentation (especially in regard to EMR entry), financial remuneration, and auditing. You will be able to ensure proper documentation and compliance, thereby maximising your reimbursements in 2019.
