Seminar: E & M Coding Made Easy
Tuesday, August 16, 2016
North Little Rock
In the last decade, billing for higher-level E&M codes has increased vastly, drawing the attention of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General (OIG). A medical records review found that Medicare inappropriately paid some $6.7 billion for incorrectly coded claims and those lacking proper documentation. Not surprisingly, OIG is calling on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to use all the tools at its disposal to identify and eliminate improper payments associated with E&M services.
This medical auditing E&M training program will provide you everything you need to be an E&M auditing pro! Designed as a one day course, our National Alliance of Medical Auditing Specialists (NAMAS) instructor will dig deep into all areas of E&M auditing, breaking down each section individually and even giving you a chance to apply what you’ve learned to case studies.
This training is designed for professional coders in all specialties that provide E&M services. Physicians with a basic understanding of E&M Coding will also benefit from this training.
CEUs: This workshop is approved by the AACP for 8.0 CEUs. CEUs can be split between Core A and all specialties except CASCC, CIRCC and CPCO for continuing education units.
