Product Description

If prolonged services have kicked in, make sure you know about it … and code for them!

If you aren't using prolonged services codes, you're giving away physician services for free. Many coders are undercoding these services because the codes are so convoluted and difficult to use -- and physicians aren't adequately documenting them. Get comfortable using these codes during this audio learning session with topic expert, Barbara Cobuzzi. She'll share information every coder and practitioner should know about documenting for and reporting these services, fill you in on CMS' latest rules, offer financial insight, and more.

What you’ll learn:

  • Coding rules for prolonged services in plain English.
  • When prolonged services kick in -- an easier way to calculate.
  • What CMS is looking for in your documentation to allow prolonged services payment.
  • Get up to speed: Make sure you know CMS' latest changes to prolonged services rules.
  • Top 3 compliance issues associated with coding prolonged services.
  • What using -- and not using -- prolonged services means to your practice financially.
  • Common questions related to prolonged services: face-to-face versus non face-to-face encounters and more!
