Description

“Throughout the presentation we’ll discuss what the payors’ auditors are looking for to identify outliers and deny claims, and will conclude with a plan on how to incorporate a self-audit program for your practice.”

The first rule in medical coding is: If it wasn’t documented, it wasn’t done.

In this presentation we will look at best practices and requisite language for documenting specific services including surgical procedures, infusions, and telehealth visits, as well as the verbiage necessary for incident-to, shared-service, and teaching physician encounters. 

We’ll discuss the importance of identifying all of the diagnoses being treated during a patient encounter and the importance of including this information on your claim. We’ll also take a deep dive into the documentation requirements for outpatient evaluation and management services this year, with an emphasis on the adjusted medical-decision-making components.

Identify ways to improve your medical records documentation to better support the services you’re providing, reduce denials, and “audit proof” your claims with this presentation hosted by a Certified Professional Medical Auditor.
