Mastering evaluation and management (E&M) services is a challenge you can achieve. And that is good news because E&M services are often audited, and the failure rate is high. There is no subjectivity to choosing the appropriate level E&M based on the encounter that took place. But this can be objectively determined based on what was performed, documented, and what was medically necessary. At the conclusion of this exclusive ICD10monitor, four-part webcast series, you will be able to confidently determine the appropriate E&M code based on the encounter that took place every time without any subjectivity and without any guessing!

In our first two webcasts in this series, Dr. Jeffrey Lehrman examined the three key elements of E&M coding: history, exam, and decision making. Now it is time to pull these all together to objectively determine the appropriate E&M code based on the encounter that took place. Dr. Lehrman will look at the performance, documentation, and medical necessity of the elements of E&M coding and use them to determine code selection. This webcast will include real note example that you and Dr. Lehrman will work through together to code.

Your E&M coding skills will be excellent at the conclusion of this webcast series!

Why This is Relevant:

E&M services are regularly audited and come with a high failure rate. Those creating the note and determining the code should have an intimate knowledge of E&M guidelines. The problem, however, is that too often those individuals do not have that knowledge and hence the audits, denials and takebacks.

Take this brief quiz to see if you and your team could benefit from this webcast:

  1. Can you describe the role that time plays in determining the E&M level?
  2. How many of the key element thresholds must be satisfied for an established patient E&M?
  3. How many of the key element thresholds must be satisfied for a consultation E&M?
  4. How many of the key element thresholds must be satisfied for a new patient E&M?

Learning Objectives:

From this exclusive ICD10monitor webcast, conducted by, Dr. Jeffrey Lehrman you will…

  • Learn the thresholds of performance, documentation, and medical necessity of CPT® 99203;
  • Know the thresholds of performance, documentation, and medical necessity of CPT 99204;
  • Understand the thresholds of performance, documentation, and medical necessity of CPT 99202;
  • Learn the thresholds of performance, documentation, and medical necessity of CPT 99212; and
