This refresher course lasts approximately 1 hour and covers the basics of Evaluation and Management (E/M) coding/auditing. We’ve found that E/M doesn’t always get the attention it deserves in coding education courses, despite its growing importance in the field. This refresher course will stay true to its name by refreshing your memory on E/M’s core values, guidelines, and requirements.
Students will learn (or re-learn) how to differentiate between E/M level of service, work on documentation improvement strategies, and best practices for avoiding common E/M coding errors such as up/down coding.
Check out the Advize E/M Calculator auditing tool.
