Back to Package

Friday, August 4th | Loews Vanderbilt Hotel 

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm Central Standard Time

KZA is excited to bring you the most up-to-date orthopaedic coding and billing guidelines to start the year off right.  As you kick off 2023, the last thing you want are disruptions in your practice as you get up to speed with the changes to the Evaluation and Management Services for hospital coding.  

This workshop can give you a foundation of knowledge to help you quickly embrace the new changes in the hospital E/M codes while reviewing the codes and guidelines for office or other outpatient E/M services. Roll up your sleeves and join us for hands-on coding of orthopaedic visits to master these new changes.

In this course we will take an in-depth look at the new 2023 hospital E/M guidelines and a detailed review of the office or other outpatient E/M guidelines as we present them in the distilled understandable format that is KZA’s signature. Dive into the details of APP billing for incident to, direct, and split/shared billing for Medicare claims, with a focus on applying the CMS criteria. Finally, we will review Radiology billing and how it relates to E/M Data criteria. 

Learning Objectives:

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

  • Recharge your knowledge of the CPT 2021 E/M requirements for Office/Outpatient services
  • Conquer the new CPT 2023 E/M guidelines for Inpatient, Observation, Consultations, and Emergency Department services
  • Identify and apply E/M modifiers accurately
  • Recognize when it is appropriate to report an E/M service with joint injections and other minor procedures
  •  Clarify Medicare’s incident-to versus split/shared reporting rules for APPs
