Improving audit proficiency reduces the practice risk and supports proper payments. The instructor will explain the benefits of establishing an ongoing chart audit process and cover a step-by-step review of E/M coding procedures and each set of guidelines. Examine code linkage issues, nature of the presenting problem, and surgical and procedural documentation requirements. Learn how history and exam, medical decision making and time are impacted by the 2021 changes and affect scoring and code selection. Complete a series of advanced-level auditing exercises that will put your audit skills to the test. Learn why physicians and coders cannot rely on EMR systems to select the correct codes and get answers to your toughest coding questions. Participants in this session will audit case scenarios, including evaluation and management, ICD-10, and procedural codes with appropriate use of modifiers as they relate to coding and auditing from documentation. This advanced-level course is relevant for medical office coding, reimbursement staff, compliance officers, and consultants. The training is ideal for those with at least a year of direct coding/auditing experience for outpatient services. To fully participate, participants should bring current year CPT® and ICD-10-CM Code Set manuals to this class. A medical dictionary is recommended, but not required.
