Part I: 2021 Evaluation & Management (E/M) Changes for Community Health Reporting Face-to-Face & Virtual E/M Visits
Tuesday, January 19 | 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST
This interactive webinar is intended for healthcare practitioners, medical billers, coders, auditors, office managers and IT professionals involved with authoring clinical documentation, generating E&M progress notes, auditing professional physician service claims, and maintaining a healthy revenue cycle. The primary course focus will emphasize the updated 2021 documentation guidelines set forth by the AMA and CMS for reporting Evaluation and Management services (E&M) in 2021.
- Attendees will be able understand when to apply their knowledge of the updated 2021 E/M guidelines for office/outpatient encounters while maintaining their existing knowledge of the 1995/1998 documentation guidelines for all other E/M services such as inpatient, nursing facility, and all other E/M services.
- Learners will be able to train their clinical colleagues on how to code correctly and when to utilize the revised 2021 definition of the “time” versus when to use the updated definition of Medical Decision Making for coding and billing.
- Attendees will understand how and when to report CPT/HCPCS-II codes for non-face-to-face visits such as CMS Covered Telehealth, Virtual Communication Services, Online E/M Services, “Store-and-Forward” visits, and Transitional Care Management.
Part II: Treating Substance/Opioid Use Disorders via Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) in Community Health
Tuesday, January 26 | 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST
By providing CMS-covered Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) services in the treatment of Substance/Opioid Use Disorders (SUD and OUD) your community health center’s clinical providers may be eligible for a more full range of loan repayment programs while providing desperately needed services to patients who need help with the medical and behavioral health issue related to this other public health emergency.
Integrating Primary Care and Mental/Behavioral Health services is key and this webinar will outline the steps needed to effectively document, code, and bill for services including screening for SUD/OUD and providing care during the induction, stabilization, and maintenance phases of MAT. Individual state Medicaid issues are too numerous and will not be specifically referred to on a state-by-state basis.
- Attendees will be able to identify where the rules and regulations around documentation, coding, and CMS billing for MAT services and how commercial insurers may want the services reported differently than on a Medicare claim.
- Attendees will understand how to correctly report services as non-face-to-face, Behavioral Health Integration, and the Psychiatric Collaborative Care Model.
- Attendees will be able to identify the full range of options available for ICD-10-CM codes and how the DSM-V clinical manual used by clinical providers may use different terminology than the ICD-10-CM requires.
