Medical Necessity – Tips on Documentation to Prove it

When:  Mar 6, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (ET)

Health Plans are starting to scrutinize Evaluation and Management(E/M) coding for medical necessity now more than ever.  Yes, you may have met the components of the E/M code per CPT guidelines, but does the medical necessity of the visit warrant the level of E/M code selected?

This session is designed for physicians, medical billers and coders, to help recognize that words and the specificity of diagnosis selection is key to proving medical necessity.  This session will cover:

  • Medical necessity is the “overarching criterion” for services – What does that mean?
  • How can a few words make the difference?
  • ICD-10 code selection can make it easier
  • Having trouble with prior authorizations – Are they being denied for medical necessity?

Registration:   8:30 a.m.

Presentation:  9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Presenter:  Jill Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC
