Many medical societies pushed for these new reimbursement guidelines implemented in 2013. But there are many questions raised about documentation and utilization rules with them. CMS initially recommended its own G code but when they decided to go with the CPT® code, some of the rationale and logic for the codes were not redefined. You need to make sure you are not limiting yourself because of the G code logic and missing out on opportunities to bill for these services, which is very important for your financial health. For instance, compliant use of the codes based on encounters with the patient is really very important and can affect your revenue. Additionally, you also need to understand when you can bill for other E&M services within the 30 days of the TCM codes, so you won't leave any reimbursement dollars on the table.
Join this educative session presented by expert speaker Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC who will enlighten you on the best sources of information about these new codes; when does the clock start for the timelines mandated by the codes i.e. within 2 days of discharge; understanding CMS definition of business day and why it matters; documentation tips for each code - how they are similar and where they are different.
Here's a look at what the speaker will cover:
