Product Description

Capture Lost Dollars with Correct Use of Prolonged Care Codes and Compliant Documentation


Spending time with a patient above and beyond the typical time published for the Evaluation and Management service, is not time or money lost. Prolonged care codes exist to allow for additional payment to the provider for this time spent. In 2016 a new Prolonged Clinical Staff Services code was created. In 2017, Medicare will not allow payment for both of the provider Face-to-Face and Non-Face-to-Face prolonged care codes.

This conference by expert speaker Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC, will explain each code, their use and what is needed for compliant documentation. A full understanding of these codes will help your practice capture dollars you have been losing unintentionally.

Session Highlights:

  • Documentation differences for Prolonged Care Codes – CMS to CPT®
  • In the Alphabet soup of patient care codes (TCM, CCM, CPO), what are the billing implications when Prolonged Care time overlaps with these codes?
  • Documenting time for these care codes, what is required and what time counts?
  • What are the major differences in Prolonged Care codes for physicians and those for clinical staff?
  • Post the enclosed time grid as a guide for your physicians on what the time thresholds are for the various E&M codes?
