Conquering the challenges of proper coding and billing can be especially challenging for an OB/GYN practice when it comes to properly documenting evaluation and management (E&M) services. Educating physicians as well as coding and billing staff is crucial for creating the correct documentation for clear, concise and correct coding and billing of medical E&M visits for wellness, illness and pregnancy, and ancillary services for OB/GYN practices.
This webinar with expert speaker Lori-Lynne Webb will provide in-depth strategies for coding and billing in this tricky area. Learn to use all the tools and important information at your disposal in a timely manner to ensure compliance, and avoid misunderstandings on complex clinical issues that greatly affect not only your practice’s revenue, but also how your patients will perceive your practice when they receive their statements and insurance benefit notices.
You’ll learn the documentation criteria and standards from CPT, ICD-10 and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) for E&M and wellness and medical necessity documentation. Coders and providers alike will gain confidence that correctly documented and coded services will result in receiving all the reimbursement you’re due for provided services. Lori-Lynn will also provide you with a clear understanding of all the documentation required for a successful OB/GYN hospitalist practice. You’ll get documentation and coding tips that are key to creating good office practice processes and building written and verbal communication skills.
Lori-Lynn will also provide coding tools and strategies to help implement the correct processes used for documentation for critical and basic E&M and wellness clinical medical record documentation. Better understanding of the CPT E&M rules and good clinical documentation goes hand in hand with correct, clean claims and better overall revenue returns, patient satisfaction and employee buy-in. Let this coding compliance expert show you how to create a better work-flow and increase your OB/GYN practice’s revenues as a result.
