Proper evaluation and management (E/M) coding is essential to ensure your practice is reimbursed correctly for services rendered—as well as to minimize your audit risk. Providers and staff should be aware of how documentation of a pain management office visit translates into the level of evaluation and management service. And the devil is in the details.
For instance, do you know who can obtain what portions of the visit? What does your bell-shaped curve look like? Elements such as these are often overlooked, leading to poor E/M documentation, coding missteps, and lost revenue.
Get help from healthcare coding expert Amy Turner in this information-packed webinar. She’ll overview pain management coding for 2018 and explain the rules regarding new or “consult” patient versus established patients. You’ll also learn the importance of these elements: chief complaint, review of systems (ROS), history of present illness (HPI), physical exam, and medical decision making (MDM)—and how, combined, they should guide your E/M level selection. Plus, Turner will answer the common question: “does it become a 99214 if a prescription is written?”
After attending this instructive E/M coding session, you will be able to confidently discuss with your provider the importance of clear and concise documentation. And you’ll be equipped to properly calculate the level of HPI, ROS, physical exam, and MDM. Best of all, you’ll be on track to maximize billing revenue and lower your chances of an audit.
