This interactive 1 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 Evaluation and Management (E&M) curriculum is designed to assist with the  development and mastery of the necessary skill set to successfully report and audit E&M services. This education and training is designed to promote compliance and minimize the risk associated with post-payment review and 3rd party audit exposure. There will be a heavy focus on the proper reporting of outpatient E&M services (e.g., 99201-99215) but we will also cover various preventive services and proper reporting of E&M services to Medicare during the COVID-19 pandemic and public health emergency.
