CODING the BIG FOUR:
Diabetes, HTN, CKD, and Obesity

Presented by: Karen Scott, MEd, RHIA, CCS-P, CPC, FAHIMA

The prevalence of these four diseases in our part of the country, and their interactions merit special attention for documentation and coding to demonstrate a realistic picture of the health of so many of our patients. These four diseases have far-reaching effects not only in the care of our patients, but in the quality performance and cost valuations in commercial and government payer contracts.

This session will discuss:

  • Proper use of combination codes for reporting these interactive issues, which drive cost expectations by the payers
  • Proper reporting of CPTII codes that can show treatment outcomes for quality
  • Proper reporting of ICD + CPTII for obesity diagnoses and the effects of chronic disease on BMI level when choosing an obesity vs morbid obesity diagnosis and reporting a diagnosis without a BMI
  • Specific questions regarding the number of combo codes you can report, reporting combo codes when all of these are present, how to report CPTII codes

 

Date:            August 19, 2022                                                                       

         

Time:           9:00 to 12:00                        

                   

Location:     Online only. Link will be emailed to registrants one day prior to event.

3 hour CEU will be available for certified coding or mgt

How to Terminate an Employee Gretchen Napier MSHA CMC Medical Practice Specialist 

No one likes progressive discipline much less an employee termination, but it is a reality. Done correctly, progressive discipline puts employees on notice to improve or face the consequences. Done poorly, you may find yourself facing a claim of wrongful discharge. Using skits, this presentation demonstrates the best practices to implement a performance improvement plan and the least emotional way to terminate an employee.

Objectives:

  • Recognize the importance of progressive discipline
  • Identify best practices for documentation
  • Discover the simplest way to conduct a termination

Audience: Physician, Practice Managers, HR Professionals

Approximate length: 1 hour

One Hour on Modifier 25

Presented by: Karen Scott, MEd, RHIA, CCS-P, CPC, FAHIMA
Lunch session

Appropriate use of a 25 modifier has been causing confusion and presenting coding compliance issues since its inception. Use of this modifier is being heavily audited and payers are beginning to require providers to submit documentation much more frequently than in the past.

Join us for a detailed discussion of proper use. This session is very appropriate for clinicians as well as for coders.
