E/M coding might be part of your everyday routine, but that doesn’t mean you have to fall into a coding rut. The best way to boost your bottom line is reviewing and improving documentation. Every ob-gyn practice knows that audits often focus on E/M services. Every year, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) reviews common E/M mishaps.
Understand risk areas for billing EM services in the Ob/Gyn office. There can be significant lost revenue and/or risk by not billing for certain EM services or billing EM services inappropriately. This session with expert speaker Jan Rasmussen will address appropriate billing for higher level services, initial hospital care risks and billing for EM services associated with OB care. You will also get an understanding of billing a separate EM service at the time of a preventive medicine visit. You will also receive tips and handout for looking at EM levels based on the presenting problem.
