On-Demand - Power E/M Coding & Office Procedure Coding Workshop

On-Demand - Power E/M Coding & Office Procedure Coding Workshop

Recorded On: 09/24/2021


Back to Package

Total Time: 3 Hours, 51 Minutes

Starting in January 2021, two sets of guidelines came into play for E/M coding; one for new and established office/outpatient visits, and one for all other E/M encounters. 

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

This course analyzes the 2021 CPT E/M guidelines that apply to office new and established patient visits and presents them in the distilled understandable format for which KZA is known. Building on what providers are currently doing, the restructured elements of Medical Decision Making and Time are broken down and explained. We will also 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. Participants will have the opportunity to test their understanding and leave empowered with knowledge of when to use these guidelines for successful reimbursement.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify CPT 2021 E/M updated requirements and how they compare to original guidelines
  • Apply E/M modifiers accurately
  • Describe when it is appropriate to report an E/M service in addition to a joint injection
  • Differentiate incident-to and split/shared reporting for NPPs – how impacted in 2021
