This video tutorial will show you how to quantify your medical decision-making and select the "correct" level of care for E/M services provided in the emergency department. Then see exactly what's needed to ensure compliance and streamline the documentation process. This program takes you step-by-step through all levels of care for ER E/M services. There is a huge difference in reimbursement between the levels of care for these encounters, so it's important to get the code right!
