CMS Proposes Sweeping Changes to PFS and E&M for 2019: Are You Ready?


It's common knowledge by now that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has come out with the proposed Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) for 2019. But more importantly, it's also proposing several coding and payment changes to E&M (Evaluation and Management) patient visits. That essentially means an increased number of claim denials if you're not up to speed with these changes.

Join medical coding expert Jill M. Young in this information-packed audio conference where she will discuss the proposed new codes for visit complexity and prolonged care for 2019; the new payment structure, and also where you can find the Proposed PFS Rule and the Final PFS Rule on CMS’ website. You will learn about the four possible guidelines for E&M office services documentation, and how proactively discussing them with your provider will allow all parties to be better prepared for the change that will happen quickly if the rule is passed.

Attending this session will enrich your understanding of the proposed sweeping changes, allowing you to preliminarily look at your office structure and be better prepared to face the changes in 2019. As an experienced auditor, Young understands what your most pressing documentation challenges are likely to be, and will use a special methodology to make your documentation more succinct and expeditious. You will be able to easily adapt to the proposed E&M changes with her style of documentation, thereby minimizing errors and maximizing financial gains.
