• With the requirement by CMS in 2015 to require FQHCs to provide HCPCS code-level detail (CPT and HCPCS-2) – it has never been more important to make sure you are documenting and coding for 100% of what is done. If you aren’t documenting and coding correctly you may not be capturing everything that is done and some revenue may be left on the table!
• We will present a detailed review of the AMA’s 2017 CPT Professional Edition from the perspective of community health focusing on the services typically provided by FQHCs and look-alikes. We will focus on the guidelines that appear before and after key coding sections that are rarely accessible to providers and coders/billers in their EHRs and encoder software.
• With Information Technology finding its way into more areas of medical facilities the difference between clinical documentation, professional coding, and medical billing has never been more important. The impact of changing workflows between clinical providers and business staff must be managed by getting everybody the same education.
• We will limit the review of codes to those most commonly performed in community health – but will review the CPT, HCPCS-2, and ICD-10-CM manuals in depth including guidelines, appendices, and modifiers with focus on levels of service, preventive services, minor procedures, and the diagnoses most common to community health.
Who Should attend
This class is designed for clinical personnel (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN), coders, billers, EHR professionals, and facility/financial managers that work in FQHCs and FQHC look-alikes.
