1A: Advanced E/M Ambiguities in E/M Scoring

Michael D Miscoe, Esq, CPC, CPCO, CPMA, CASCC, CCPC, CUC; Jaci J. Kipreos, COC, CPC, CPMA, CPC-I, CEMC

Ambiguities in the guidance provided by both CMS and the AMA pertaining to selection of the level of E/M service will be identified. Beyond those guidelines, common auditing methodologies using the 95/97 Documentation Guidelines will be reviewed with special emphasis on the areas requiring subjective analysis that often leads to legitimate disputes regarding the appropriate E/M code level. Beyond mere identification of these problem areas, we will discuss workable approaches to resolving these problems as well as outline the internal policies that can be helpful when defending your E/M coding choices.

1:45 PM - 3:00 PM

1:45 PM - 3:00 PM

1D: FQHCs

Shannon O'Tyson DeConda, CPC, CPMA, CPC-I, CEMC

Many coders and auditors have heard the term FQHC, but how should that impact your coding and auditing of E&M, procedural and ancillary services? How are incident-to services viewed in the FQHC? What leniencies are granted to FQHC's that an auditor/coder should take into consideration? During this session we will review what makes FQHC coding/auditing different from a regular clinical encounter review of these same services, as well as discuss the similarities of these places of service.

1:45 PM - 3:00 PM

1E: Understanding Root Operations in ICD-10-PCS

Alicia Scott, CPC, CRC, CPC-I

When you first look at ICD-10-PCS it seems very foreign however once you understand the structure everything falls into place. That new world opens to understanding and a simplicity you will come to enjoy. The click of the light bulb made me think, “Where have you been all my life.” The behemoth of ever changing procedures in the medical field needs a code set that is adaptable and ICD-10-PCS offers that in spades.

1:45 PM - 3:00 PM

GS3: Survive and Thrive in the New HIT Environment

Robert Tennant, Director MGMA, HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY POLICY

Numerous federal health information technology opportunities and mandates will impact physician practices in 2018 and beyond. While the use of technology has the potential of transforming administrative and clinical workflows and improving bottom lines, the challenge of meeting government requirements, high implementation costs, and uncertain ROI often act as a deterrent for moving forward. This session will examine the current HIT environment, including the intersection of Medicare’s quality programs with technology and identify other federal government legislative and regulatory HIT priorities. In addition, opportunities associated with administrative simplification will be outlined and critical issues regarding compliance with HIPAA Privacy and Security will be discussed. After this session you will have a better understanding of how these various federal government and private sector initiatives will impact practices, the necessary implementation steps, and the potential consequences of non-compliance.

2A: New vs Established Patients and Modifier 25

Lori A Cox, CPC, CPMA, CPC-I, CEMC, CHONC

Evaluation and management services can be confusing. What can be particularly baffling is the need to consider the CPT and Medicare guidelines all while knowing the caveats within each. What is a professional service? How do we determine exact same specialty and subspecialty, and same group practice? We'll discuss the four main components of new vs. established and how to: Understand Professional Services, Distinguish Between Same Specialty/Subspecialty, Breakdown Same Group, and Make sense of the 3 Year Rule. Then, we will take a closer look at modifier 25. What is "separately identifiable?" When can this modifier be used?
