Have you ever felt confused when reviewing subsequent hospital services? Wondered if the note should count at all? Worried about legibility? This audio conference will discuss the good and the bad, the grey and the black and white of auditing subsequent hospital visits and nursing home services. We’ll review sample notes for each type of service and discuss the use of time in selecting these codes.
Hospital services have higher error and denial rates than office services. Many physicians who are confident about coding in the office express confusion about their charges in the hospital. They find the charge slips confusing. They make mistakes in the category of service and date of service. This conference ends that confusion.
There are black, white, and grey areas in E/M auditing. This session focuses on the grey areas with suggestions about setting policies that are consistent, safe, and reasonable.
