When it comes to correctly selecting a given EM level of service, documentation is going to be the key issue. We all know the saying “Not documented, not done” that is so true when it comes to supporting a given EM level of services. The OIG and RAC auditors are now looking ever so closely to see what documentation is being made and if there is ‘cloning’ going on.
Join this session with expert speaker Margie S. Vaught, who will discuss what is specifically needed to support a given level in the Orthopedic Specialty. Ortho examples will be provided and not just generic – this will be very specific to what is seen on a daily basis in the Orthopedic office. These will include what a 99214, 99213 or 99203 would look like. You will get EM Bell Curve information from Medicare Data for the Orthopedic, Hand and Podiatry specialties so you will be able to see where your providers/group fall.
