E/M Quick Reference Helpful or Confusing?

  1. #11
    Default Here's the second version...
    Exam Training Packages
    Thanks for the input! I'm working on dividing the first version up for Outpatient versus Inpatient/Facility...Meanwhile, here's an alternate version of just the Problem E/M codes with their requirements...

    This chart's not quite as busy, but I think the first one is more user-friendly -
    I wasn't able to include the #'s of minutes associated with each code, or any info on selecting the History, Exam, or MDM. It also lacks the preventive exams and critical care info (which I personally thought was the most useful part of the first version, since it boils nearly all of the guidelines into those little charts)...

    Thoughts?

    Default I guess the practice question answers would help...
    The first one is: A. 99468-25, 93303-26
    Second: C. 99233
    Third: B. 99219

    I just took a look at your chart Brandi! I think it's very detailed, yes it's busy but I do agree with why it is "busy". I really like how you have the breakdown on page 2 with cpt's that are included in_____.

    I think I just might utilize this chart, if you don't mind, I think personally it will help me with the pediatric e/m's as I don't do too much with ped's but with the detailed info you have on the chart, it makes it easier!

    Would you mind if I printed these and handed them out to my chapter members? I'd be sure to give you the credit due .

    Please do share! If it helps anybody with learning E/M, then it's a success!

    For those who don't have Microsoft Word, I've finally managed to upload it in picture-format. Enjoy!

    Nice but a little busy and could somewhat confusing for someone new to E&M coding. Go to www.donself.com and look at his E&M coding tool. Your same idea but not a busy...Good work though!

    Brandi,
    Who is the intended audience for this chart? I find it busy and somewhat confusing, and I already know how to code E/M.

    Just in terms of design ... you should not mix horizontal and vertical writing, which forces someone to be constantly rotating the page to read things.

    I second the opinions that say you should separate outpatient from inpatient (though I'd include ER and Observation codes in the "inpatient" chart).

    I applaud your efforts to get everything into a concise "flowchart" ... it's a Herculean task!

    Hope that's helpful.
