Training for Providers/E & M

  1. Default Training for Providers/E & M
    Medical Coding Books
    I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good training program that a provider can use to teach them about E & M charges. I would prefer a CD that they can use at home that gives a really detailed explanation. Just handing them these detailed cheat sheets just seem to create more massive confusion. I am amazed at how many providers in our area have a friend or relative that do their coding. They base their coding picks on if it "sounds like a really hard thing." I can't believe that so many offices have no clue that their is any rhyme or reason to choosing the codes. I have seen some pick 5 or 6 codes for a procedure when actually one would apply!

    Thanks

    There are many, many freebies on this site. I have providers that refer to this free information for help. (Look to the left for all the "help tabs")

    I too recommend using emuniversity, there is a plethora of learning tools on there for providers and us coders as well. About 2 years ago I took some info from CPT, AMA and carved out what I needed and wanted and made up my own training for my doctors. It works well for me and I have also referred my physicians to the emuniversity site as well.

    It works out well when training new physicians and also as a refresher for my other physicians.

    Don't forget to look at your Medicare Contractor's website. Our Contractor (HighMark Medicare) gives free E/M scoresheet training seminars at the various hospitals, which is also approved by the AAPC for 3 CEU's.
