Learn more about this event

Have you ever wondered if a level 4 or 5 office visit was really medically necessary—or if a service was actually more appropriately a level 3 versus a 2? Between EHR templates, Value Based medicine, and PQRS documentation requirements, medical records have swollen in size. They often support a level of service based on the 1995 and 1997 Documentation Guidelines, but leave no method for a coder to determine what was medically necessary. Only providers are qualified to make Medical Necessity determinations --- how can a coder be sure that they are selecting the correct code? This special presentation provides you with 3 simple solutions to ensure you’ve got the right level of service! This presentation highlights frequent (but problematic) methods used in code selection, which are adding to the problem. This presentation also provides you with alternate solutions that really work.
