Reporting Hospital E/M Codes and Split/Shared and Critical Care Services

In 2023, information overload will continue with revised E/M codes for inpatient/facility encounters that will be reported based on either medical decision making or time. Additionally, CPT has made major changes in how the category of code is selected! In partnership with the ACS, KZA coding experts will distill the primary issues in determining the problem, data and risk elements that combine to arrive at a level of service based on medical decision making. If that’s not enough, 2023 brings major (and as always confusing) changes to Medicare’s billing rules for both split/shared services and critical care! Not keeping up on these important changes will jeopardize your revenue and make you an audit target. At this course, you will get straightforward answers and a road map for accurately reporting.

General Surgery: Revenue and RVU Optimization

The 鶹ýgeneral surgery course covers all you need to know to code and document accurately and efficiently in 2023 and beyond. Important for 2023: new abdominal hernia codes which have been totally revamped. The same CPT codes will now apply for both laparoscopic and open abdominal hernia repairs, and most importantly, codes will be based on the total size of the hernia. This will require changes to how you document the hernia repair and assign the most accurate code. In addition to correct coding for abdominal hernia repair, the course will also provide in depth and clinically relevant instruction on coding for endoscopy, colorectal, breast, appendix, gall bladder, liver, intraabdominal tumor, endocrine procedures, and more. Real-life cases and discussions that link clinical procedures to the selection of CPT codes make this course ideal for surgeons and coding staff. Also new for this year, the course will delve into what you need to know about RVU compensation, what it is, and how to make sure the RVUs you produce are accurately captured.
