Here’s How You Can Ensure Correct Coding And Documentation Of Your Evaluation And Management Services.
A Neurology practice’s greatest risk lies in their documentation and coding of their evaluation and management services. You may not only risk your practice for lost revenue due to under coding or under documentation – but you might also risk your practice for costly audits that are becoming more and more popular each year. Procedure coding is often straightforward; however, E/M documentation and coding is not.
Register now for this power packed audio event which will enlighten you on how to appropriately document for the history, physical exam, and medical decision making – specific to Neurology. It will give you the audit points that most payer auditors are looking for so the practice can remain compliant. Quick guides and grids will be provided to make the process easier.
Take a look at what's covered:
