Improve Your E/M Coding and Make Your Workday Easier  

Evaluation and management (E/M) coding has been, and will continue to be, a hot area for government, payer, and compliance scrutiny. In fact, according to audit results published in the 2014 report “Improper Payments for Evaluation and Management Services Cost Medicare Billions in 2010,” 55 percent of E/M claims were incorrectly coded during 2010, resulting in $6.7 billion in improper Medicare payments.

To steer clear of trouble, you have to know the ins and outs of E/M coding and the pitfalls to avoid so you don’t over- or under-code your provider’s services. Chances are good that your payer will review any and all E/M claims your practice submits.

Bottom line: You need to know how to accurately and compliantly choose your level of service, every time.

That’s why you need the newly updated and expanded Evaluation and Management Coding Handbook.

Get over 250 pages of E/M coding guidance, plus — new for 2015 — you get level-of-service audit forms for both 1995 and 1997 guidelines and full-page 1997 specialty-specific exam calculation worksheets! Pull these pages out to tack up on your wall and make coding your E/M encounters quick and easy.
