Webinar # 2 - Dermatology E/M Modifiers and Billing (plus E/M ICD-10, Preventive Visits, and Benchmarking)

Program Description:

This webinar covers E/M coding/documentation based on existing 1995/1997 CMS guidelines and CPT guidelines. Update Medicare (2019) E/M coding/Billing rules will be covered in a future webinar.

You may think you know everything there is about E/M billing and billing E/M visits and procedures, but chances are you are making many mistakes. We routinely see evaluation and management claims billed incorrectly and inappropriately. If you bill E/Ms with procedures by adding modifier 25 each time, you're setting yourself up for audit failure! We'll cover the essential E/M modifiers (24, 25, and 57) and discuss when it's appropriate to bill for each and when it isn't. The rules when billing E/M with special procedures like injections, patch testing, PDT, and light therapy are quirky. Even Mohs and repairs with E/M are often miscoded!

We'll also make sure you're up-to-speed on billing these appropriate with E/Ms. ICD-10 coding can affect E/M reimbursement, and we'll discuss appropriate use of ICD-10 codes with E/M visits. Mandatory Global Period reporting starts July 1st for some providers. We'll explain everything you need to know and show you how to bill.
We'll include a ton of real-world examples to make sure the points are clear!

We'll end with benchmarking and how to determine if you're billing too few or too many E/Ms compared to your peers. If you're off the charts, you may be targeted for a carrier review! If you have concerns about your E/M billing habits or are getting frequent claim denials and requests for records, you need to attend this webinar!

The speaker for this event is Karl M. Ellzey,CDC, President and Founder of Ellzey Coding Solutions
