E/M Coding & Office Procedure Coding​ - LIVE!

We will answer these questions and more:

  • If I schedule surgery, is that automatically a level 5 office visit?
  • Does interpreting an audiogram count as moderate data?
  • Do I always get to code both the office visit with modifier 25 and the procedure on the same day?
  • Can the audiologist bill an E/M code for interpreting an audiogram?
  • Demonstrate comprehension of the difference between the office E/M documentation requirements compared to the other E/M documentation requirements.
  • Demonstrate understanding of when to report consultation codes instead of other E/M codes to increase reimbursement when applicable.
  • Report E/M services with modifier 25 compliantly.
  • Distinguish the difference between the diagnostic endoscopy codes 31231, 31575 and 92511.
  • Describe the documentation requirements for using the cerumen removal code, 69210, and when an E/M code may be separately reported.
  • Apply E/M modifiers accurately.
  • Identify key requirements for “incident to”, direct and shared/split billing for non-physician practitioners (NPPs).

Improve Your Bottom Line - LIVE!

Whether you’re planning to stay in private practice or you are considering being acquired, merged, or employed – a better bottom line pays off. Don’t get stuck in TGE thinking – by the way, that stands for “That’s Good Enough.” Frankly, you and your practice are more valuable if sound processes are in place, documented, and followed.

This workshop is filled with assessments you can use to see how well the business office or your billing service is doing. We include assessments you can use when hiring billing managers and coders.

Join us for three fast-paced hours with information you can put into place that can improve your bottom line in 90 days.

This program meets AAPC guidelines for 3.0 CEUs in Core B, Please note: Core B can comprise no more than 33% (1/3) of the total Core continuing education units.

  • We solve your coding conundrums!

  • Use surgery coding that meets CPT rules and government regulations, for commonly performed procedures.
