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 the second installment in this series, your webcast leader, Dr. Jeffrey Lehrman, will discuss one of the three elements used in determining the appropriate E&M code: Decision Making. During Part II, Dr. Lehrman will focus on just the decision-making element of E&M coding. Dr. Lehrman will dissect the components of differential diagnoses, treatment options, amount and complexity of data, and risk. Dr. Lehrman will look at each of these, how to quantify each, and how they contribute to the selection of the decision-making level. There is no subjectivity to any of this. After this webcast, you will be able to determine the decision-making level confidently without any guessing.
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:
- List the three factors in considering the level of decision making for an E&M visit
- Do the 1995 / 1997 E&M Documentation Guidelines indicate that one component of E&M coding carries more weight than the others?
- What level of risk must be reached for straight forward decision making?
- What level of data must be reached for straight forward decision making?
From this exclusive ICD10monitor webcast, conducted by, Dr. Jeffrey Lehrman you will…
