Getting your Evaluation and Management (E/M) coding correct in 2019 is more important than EVER to your bottom line (especially considering the massive E/M infrastructure changes coming soon).
CMS implemented a number of significant changes to their E/M guidelines and codes this year. Several of these changes give you the opportunity to get paid for services that were previously not reimbursable, which is great news. But if you’re not utilizing these new codes correctly they will do you no good.
There is quick-access help available. Coding expert and educator, Ronda Ash CPC, CPMA, CHC, CHCA, CIFHA, will present a plain-English online training session that walks you through CMS’ E/M changes. You’ll receive a step-by-step breakdown of how to effectively implement these changes, and how to ensure that your previous coding processes don’t conflict with new guideline edits.
Here’s just some of the easy-to-understand expert E/M advice you’ll receive by taking advantage of this, 90-minute online training:
- Break down the 2019 E/M Final Rule into what you REALLY need to know
- Clarify definition of new vs. established patient criteria to ensure accurate coding
- Differentiate consultations from referrals to capture lost revenue
