This interactive 2-day training is intended for healthcare practitioners, medical billers, coders, auditors, office managers and IT professionals involved with authoring clinical documentation, generating E&M progress notes, auditing professional physician service claims and maintaining a healthy revenue cycle. The primary course focus will emphasis documentation guidelines set forth by CMS for reporting Evaluation and Management services (E&M), as defined by CPT. The curriculum will provide attendees with a strong grasp of Evaluation and Management auditing, coding and documentation techniques.


The curriculum is designed to assist in development and mastery of the necessary skill set to successfully audit Evaluation and Management (E&M) services. This education and training has been designed to promote compliance and minimize the risk mitigation associated with post-payment review and 3rd party audit exposure.


Curriculum specifics will include:

The “Key Components” associated with E&M code selection

The differences between the CPT and CMS E&M documentation guidelines

Discuss the use of utilization benchmarks to target potential risk areas

Explain the differences between the 1995 and 1997 examination guidelines

Determining the complexity of medical decision making (MDM)

The importance to ‘link’ ICD-10-CM codes to E&M services

Risks associated with certain EHRs solutions (e.g, “wizards”)

Distinguishing “problem-oriented” from “preventive” E&M services

What to look for when modifiers are reported with E&M services (e.g., -25)

How to use a well-constructed audit template to conduct reviews

Key steps to present audit findings to providers successfully and non-confrontationally


Day 1 of the program primarily focuses on instruction and review of pertinent source documents (e.g., AMA’s 2019 CPT guidelines and CMS’ E&M Documentation Guidelines and some of the categories of E&M services located in CPT.


Day 2 of the program will be used to reinforce Day 1 learning objectives while focusing on specific categories of E&M service. There will be a series of hands-on cases for instructor-led audit instruction followed by individual or small group audits of cases presented by class attendees.


IMPORTANT! - For added value - bring your own notes for solo or small group review so you walk out with completed audits! Please be sure to remove any and all information that can identify the patient- this is known as being HIPAA de-identified.

Attendee Responsibilities:  Each attendee is expected to present to class with the following:


2019 CPT (AMA Professional Edition strongly encouraged)

Up to 5 HIPAA de-identified E&M cases for potential solo and/or group hands-on review

2 highlighters
