Coding From a Physician’s Perspective Webinar

Learn more about this event

Medical coders and auditors must learn to work closely with physicians. This requires understanding a physician’s perspective on coding. Though this perspective might vary from physician to physician, there are some general conclusions that can be made about most physicians’ perspectives on coding.
This webinar will explore the psyche and perspective of physicians on coding. Attendees will learn how to better communicate important coding concepts with physicians including modifiers, NCCI edits, and the sub-components of evaluation and management medical decision making.

Learning Objectives/Agenda

• What are the initial thoughts and perspectives that most physicians have about coding and why?
• Discuss methods and approaches to successfully communicate with physicians about coding.
• Avoid common mistakes when communicating with physicians about documentation or coding deficiencies found during monitoring or auditing.
• Discuss useful analogies and examples that help physicians understand NCCI edits and modifiers
• Learn how physicians approach medical decision making and how that relates to E/M MDM level selection.

Why is this topic important?

Today, physicians are often squeezed between tight revenue cycle margins and compliance regulations. This can sometimes lead physicians to viewing coding in a much different way than coders, auditors, revenue cycle professionals and compliance personnel. Gaining insight into how physicians view coding can help coders better communicate and work with physicians in a collaborative manner instead of an adversarial one.

Who would benefit from this topic?

• Medical Coders
• Coding Auditors> • Revenue Cycle Personnel
• Compliance Professionals
• Billers
