Although just about all office-based practices code E/M services, very few get it right. Medicare data shows that 45% of all E/M claims are filed incorrectly. As a seasoned E/M coder, your error rate may not be this high, but even one mistake can cause lost revenue that is rightfully yours.
Not every coder is up to the challenge of seriously reducing their E/M claims error rate. This isn’t basic E/M coding. You need a solid understanding of E/M guidelines, and then you can take it to the next level.
