FAQ: Are E/M Guidelines Available on SuperCoder?
Absolutely! On an E/M code details page, scroll down under the Lay Term to the CPT® Guidelines section. You’ll see a link to E/M Guidelines there that will show you the same guidelines you would see in a printed manual at the beginning of the E/M section.
If you’re looking for the 1995 and 1997 Documentation Guidelines, we have those, too. Choose Publications/Government. Then on the left side menu, click Evaluation & Management Guidelines.
And of course you can always simplify application of the guidelines by subscribing to EM Auditor, an E/M calculator that automates coding with a user-friendly step-by-step approach. For instance, EM Auditor automatically calculates the proper code using both the 1995 and 1997 guidelines.
FAQ: How Can I Check a Previous Quarter’s CCI Edits?
If your subscription includes the CCI Edits Checker, you can check edits going back to 2011 by using the dropdown list in the Version/Date box. This feature is helpful if you’re working on claims with a date of service in a previous quarter for reasons such as an appeal or an audit.
