Welcome to your billing and coding weekly solutions by H.J.Ross Company where getting your bills paid is what we do best!
How does time factor into choosing the correct billing code for evaluation and management (E&M)?
Time is now a specific parameter to choose the level of E&M and is not just time face-to-face, but represents the total provider time spent on the date of service.
In Part 1 we will cover five of the nine specific examples for eligible E & M time.
1. Preparing to see the patient (e.g., review of tests)
2. Obtaining and/or reviewing separately obtained history
3. Performing a medically appropriate examination and/or evaluation
4. Counseling and educating patient / family / caregiver
5. Ordering tests or procedures
The protocols for choosing the proper E&M service will maintain medical decision-making as a method to choose the code.
