    February 25 - 3:00 PM Central |$199 | This hour-long virtual course will show you how to document and code office procedures right the first time.

    Office Procedures—Document and Code Them Right
    Friday, February 25th | 3:00 PM Central (4:00 PM Eastern/ 2:00 PM Mountain/ 1:00 PM Pacific)
    Cost: $199

    Coding for procedures done in your office depends on understanding the criteria for the procedure supported by surgeon-friendly templates to capture essential documentation. Surgeons commonly excise lesions, perform biopsies, and do laceration repairs in their office and other outpatient settings. Often, EHR templates fail to prompt you to document key information to support the code. When insurers ask for records or you file an appeal—the missing details result in no payment. This session walks you through examples of solid documentation for office procedures and appropriate use of modifier -25 and discusses diagnosis coding that establishes medical necessity for the service.

    Learning Objectives

    • Document office procedures based on the CPT requirements
    • Select the correct codes for office procedures
    • Be confident when to bill for both an office visit and a procedure and use modifier -25

    Thursday, February 10th | 3:00 PM Central (4:00 PM Eastern/ 2:00 PM Mountain/ 1:00 PM Pacific)
    Cost: $249

    When surgeons treat patients in the Emergency Department, on observation and inpatient units—code selection and documentation are key. In order to be paid, you need to select the right type of service (category of code) and level of service describing the care you provided and documented. Selecting the wrong type of service leads to denials. Selecting the wrong level of service can lead to audits or under payments. While observation and inpatient services can be based on the key components or time, ED visits must be coded based on the key components. Learn when it is beneficial to use time in code selection, and how to document it. Join us to learn what you and your coders need to know about correct coding for hospital E/M services.

    Learning Objectives

    • Determine the correct category of code
    • Know when to use time to select the level of service, and how to document
    • Select the level of service based on history, exam and medical decision making
