Event Date: 

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Understanding the climate of compliance has become paramount in successfully running a successful practice. As the federal government focuses on finding “fraud and waste,” documentation expectations in both a hospital and private practice environments have taken a new set of rules. This webinar replay focuses on the impact of government and private payor audits and how it relates to evaluation and management services in both an inpatient and outpatient setting. It will also cover audit targets with emphasis on collaborative visits with physicians and NPPs.

OBJECTIVES 

  • Overview of E/M criteria for new, established, admission, and subsequent visits.
  • Discuss the uses of 1995 to 1997 exam guidelines and impact on EMR code checks.
  • Learn how time-based services can solidify E/M visits to override criteria.
  • Understand the basics of “incident to” and shared services with consideration to regulatory constraints based on place of service.
