What if you were told that accurate medical coding could be the difference between a medical billing of $20 and $2000 for the same type of treatment given for the same condition? Given the paradigm shift towards value-based care, won’t you want to select the correct E/M code depending upon the total time spent with the patient?
Revolutionary changes to evaluation and management (E/M) coding took effect from Jan. 1, 2021. The latest guidelines for the American Medical Association (AMA) have exempted doctors from using E/M codes based on the patient’s history or physical exam. Instead, it allows the physician to code based on the total time spent during the clinical encounter.
Leave it to the experts – ScribeEMR medical coders
Hundreds of code updates occur every year with CPT and ICD codes; many of which can affect medical billing significantly. It is almost impossible to keep track of all the changes. Additionally, errors in medical coding can jeopardize the reimbursement process, leading to claim rejections and resulting in either delay, or loss of revenue. Critical medical coding errors can also result in federal penalties, fines, and even imprisonment. These are some of the reasons why it is imperative for you to hand over the tedious, yet critical task of medical coding and billing to experts.
