  • E/M for Non-Office Services, NPP Billing, and E/M Modifiers for Orthopaedics Workshop

    2 new product(s) added recently

    Starting on January 2021, two sets of guidelines came into play for E/M coding; one for new and established office/outpatient codes (99202-99215) and one for all other E/M categories of codes.

    Starting on January 2021, two sets of guidelines came into play for E/M coding; one for new and established office/outpatient codes (99202-99215) and one for all other E/M categories of codes

    Are your providers ready to seamlessly move between these guidelines to optimize E/M revenue?  If not, updating their knowledge on the original E/M guidelines will be critical.

    This 3-hour course analyzes the existing (original 1995/1997) CPT E/M guidelines and presents them in the distilled understandable format for which KZA is known.  This course will update providers on all E/M guidelines for ED, inpatient, observation, and consultation codes, as well as review the essential topics of NPP Billing and how to use E/M Modifiers.

    The course includes “hands-on” coding of E/M notes as well as plenty of time for Q&A.  Participants will have the opportunity to test their understanding and leave empowered with knowledge of when to use these guidelines for successful reimbursement.

    As a result of attending this course, participants will be able to:

    • Explain how medical necessity and clinical documentation improvement can impact the practice and guard against lost
    • Comply with E/M documentation guidelines and appropriate use of the Electronic Health
    • Define risk areas in their documentation and understand how to improve
    • Demonstrate understanding of when consultation codes should be billed instead of other E/M categories.
    • Report E/M services with modifiers
    • Demonstrate comprehension of Medicare’s “incident to” billing, direct, and shared/split visit guidelines. Be able to locate information on state regulations for NPs and PAs.

    Workshop Access

    You will receive a link to join the session approximately 1 week in advance.

    A full day devoted to trauma surgery and critical care coding! You asked for it, we're delivering it. This information-packed course goes narrow and deep into the distinct coding issues faced by trauma and critical care providers: learn the granularities of the relevant global surgical packages; gain the know-how for choosing the correct modifier to report surgeon role, same-day surgical procedure, and surgical procedures performed within the global period; and get all of the details needed to code and document an array of common procedures in a trauma and critical care environment, including emergent procedures, abdominal and thoracic trauma, damage control surgery, wound care, imaging, and vessel repair. 

    This year we've expanded the critical care section to almost an entire afternoon that will leave you confident about your critical care documentation and coding. Case scenarios will help you identify which critical care circumstances support critical care reporting and how to create documentation that will hold up under scrutiny. 

    We'll also describe when resident or NP/PA documentation and time count in your critical care calculation. This course connects clinical procedures to the selection of CPT codes making it ideal for surgeons and coding staff.

    Package Access and Expiration

    You will have access to this package for 60 days from the day you purchase it.

  • The Art of Coding Office and Hospital Visits Workshop - ACS

    Prepare for the major change to documenting and coding office visit codes in 2021.

    Prepare for the major change to documenting and coding office visit codes in 2021.  Code selection for services billed using 99202—99215 will no longer follow the 1995/1997 Documentation Guidelines. Learn what will determine code selection, including updated rules for using time and significant changes in the table or risk related to the decision for surgery.  Discover how to bill for prolonged care services in the office, for those visits that take an extraordinary about of time. This three-hour session also covers coding for services performed in the hospital. Surgeons will need to use two sets of rules, one for office visits and one for services done in facilities.
