Coding/Billing Compliance & Self Audits
Rayna McSpadden SVMIC Practice Consultant

Overview: CMS has stepped up the number and types of audits plaguing medical practices over the past few years. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) recommends groups that receive any Federal money to implement billing, coding, and documentation audits as part of their compliance program. This presentation discusses why these audits are important, as well as how performing routine self-audits may help in staying in compliance.

Objectives:

• Identify areas of risk within coding and billing

• Review the various types of governmental coding/billing audits and what they mean for your practice

• Discuss the process for self-auditing

Coding for Social Determinants of Health: 
Good for patient care, quality measure outcomes, and E&M levels

Lunchtime session April 5

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

Payers are beginning to acknowledge that regardless of proper medical attention and prescribed treatment, circumstances in a patient’s life outside the control of the physician and the patient heavily influence a patient’s health and well-being. And evaluating your patient for these issues can affect E&M level selection.

Codes to indicate these harmful situations, whether environmental or economic or otherwise, allow for reporting of treatment failures, unexpected negative outcomes, and generally increased risk in patients who may have socioeconomic reasons for less than expected positive outcomes and higher cost.

Due to the brief time scheduled for these sessions, please try to log in on time. We will start promptly at 12:15.
 
Attention will be given to:

  • Introduction and overview of social determinants
  • Attention to codes currently available for reporting
  • Influence on E&M level selection

 

Dates:               March 8 and 15, April 5 and 12

Time:               12:15 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.           

                       

 Location:        Online only. Link will be emailed to registrant 1 day prior.

**This course is open only to participating MetroCare Physicians members and their staff. 1 hour CEUs will be available.
