Understanding what constitutes “significant and separately identifiable evaluation and management” is crucial for reporting both E&M and a procedure in a single patient encounter.
“When can we report both evaluation and management (E&M) and a procedure in the same patient encounter?” It’s one of the most common questions we hear from coders. It’s also one of the trickiest coding scenarios to get right. One misstep, and you could be looking at a payer denial or edit — even when the charges are truly legitimate. The key to capturing payment for both services is knowing when the provider has delivered a “significant and separately identifiable E&M service” and having the documentation to prove it.
Join us for this exclusive ICD10monitor webcast, where you’ll learn what constitutes a significant and separately identifiable E&M service and what documentation you need to support it. Dr. Jeffrey Lehrman, a nationally recognized coding, compliance and documentation consultant, will clearly explain when it’s appropriate to report both E&M and a procedure. Along the way, he’ll walk you through must-know concepts, including the difference between an E&M service and a history and physical exam and the dangers of using the outdated term “office visit.”
Payers are all too eager to impose denials or edits when they review billing for E&M and a procedure in the same patient encounter. You need to protect your revenue from these adverse — and sometimes arbitrary — actions. From this ICD10monitor webcast, you’ll acquire essential knowledge for ensuring that you satisfy the criteria for significant and separately identifiable E&M when reporting both types of services in a single encounter.
