This course teaches you everything you need to know about the 1995 and 1997 E/M guidelines. Learn how to document the history and physical exam and how to quanitfy your medical decision-making. You are probably over-documenting!   Learn how to select the "correct" level of care for every encounter based on the cognitive labor provided. Then perform and document the history and exam in a purpose-driven manner to ensure compliance.   Now that the consult codes have been eliminated for Medicare patients, the new office patient visit has become the most common outpatient initial encounter. Learn exactly what needs to be documented for each level of care for these visits. All levels of care are discussed.

These are the most common hospital encounters. Most doctors over-document and under-code for these services. This course will show you how to avoid this trap and save time while increasing reimbursement.   Although Medicare no longer pays for consult services, some private payers still do. But beware. Auditors love to downcode these visits when doctors don't include the exact right terminology. Learn to get it right.   What is critical care? What needs to be documented? What is needed for prolonged services? Using real-life examples, you will get the answers to these questions and more from this course.
