MAXIMIZE YOUR REIMBURSEMENT

If you under-bill a claim for an evaluation and management service by 1 level, you’re missing out on about $30-$50 per claim, depending on the type of service.  Think about the money you could be leaving on the table year after year.  If you under-bill by 1 level just 10 times over the course of the year, this course will pay for itself.  Beyond that, your practice will see increased revenue simply by correctly selecting the level of E/M service.

MINIMIZE YOUR RISK

Not only is comprehensive Evaluation and Management training a wise investment, it will protect your practice in the event of an audit.  Your providers will have a better understanding of the documentation requirements for E/M services, and will be less likely to have adverse audit results.  This will lead to less time, frustration, and resources wasted paying back money in penalties, or appealing the findings.

According to the Office of Inspector General, 55% of all claims for Evaluation and Management Services billed to Medicare in 2010 were incorrectly coded, resulting in $6.7 billion in improper Medicare payments.  CMS has ramped up its efforts to detect and recoup improper payments each year.  In 2010, RACs collected $75.4 million in overpayments.  That figure has skyrocketed in just a few years to over $3.6 billion in 2013, and is trending even higher this year.  In recent years, the amount of providers who have appealed RAC findings has skyrocketed -but that backlog of appeals has ballooned to the point that there is an estimated 2 year backlog to have an appeal heard by an Administrative Law Judge.

CODE WITH CONFIDENCE

Keep the auditors off your back, while ensuring that your practice gets the full reimbursement it deserves.  Your coders and/or providers will finally be able to take the guess-work out of Evaluation and Management coding by gaining a comprehensive understanding of the components and documentation requirements for E/M services.

Learn at your own pace.  Gain access to great resources.  Retake the course whenever you like.  Consider it an investment for your practice.  Remember, the best way to prevent the headaches of an audit, or fighting an appeal, is to implement a comprehensive billing compliance program.  With sound documentation and correct coding for E/M services, you will be on your way to steering clear from the RACs.
