Product Description

Understand CMS’ Requirements for Inpatient Billing Using the 2019 CPT® Codeset

Coding for inpatient E&M services has very specific requirements, and CMS is currently looking at the usage of these codes to ensure proper reimbursement for the services provided. A good understanding of the concepts and criteria will help you forge through current denials within your inpatient E&M program, processes, and coding—and also determine whether an appeal is necessary.

Learn the key strategies and coding concepts necessary for correct billing of the CPT® mandated and CMS’ inpatient E&M codes from coding specialist Lori-Lynne A. Webb. Webb will explain the nuances of hospital admissions/discharge coding and documentation, along with a brief overview of critical care and time based services that you should know. She will walk you through the requirements for hospital based physician charges for admission codes, daily/rounding codes, and discharge services codes; and take a close look at CMS’ requirements for inpatient billing using the 2019 CPT® codes and codeset. She will also share tips and best practices that show you how clinical and office staff can improve your practice’s financial bottom line.

After attending this session, you will be able to confidently apply the correct and necessary clinical documentation so that it translates well into your billing, coding, and reimbursement. You will also be in a better position to avoid getting into denial and appeal situations.
