Preventive Services for Commercial and Medicare Plans

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

                and Fran Parker, Quality Data Coordinator

                                             MetroCare Physicians

The focus for preventive medicine services is to promote and maintain the well-being and health of patients to reduce risk of disease and disability. But preventive care also allows an opportunity for proper reporting of chronic disease burden in your practice population, allowing payers to more adequately estimate future resource use and cost of care for your patients. This can figure heavily in shared savings contracts and MIPS fee schedule adjustment calculations.

Fran Parker, who interacts closely with our practices and their quality reporting will join Karen to bring in discussion around practice implementation of wellness visits and what our network claims data indicates about our preventive visit rates and risk coding capture.

Karen will review preventive services and the guidelines for documentation and coding to successfully report and capture payment for these services to commercial carriers as well as Medicare.

Special topics:

  • Services that are bundled in the preventive codes
  • Preventive services and an acute problem discovered on the same day
  • Immunizations, injections, and Lab

Overview of Basic Anatomy and Medical Terminology

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

This program is a requested repeat of our popular class.

All healthcare workers should be familiar with the language of medicine.  This class is great for those new to healthcare and is a wonderful review for others. It teaches ways to learn how to break words into their word parts to facilitate understanding of medical terminology. 

Practice exercises will aid with spelling and pronunciation of terms.  Join expert Karen Scott to update terminology skills to aid with your coding responsibilities and challenges.

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

Evening Webinar

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 condensed session for clinicians 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

Time:             We will being promptly at 6:00 PM
