ED Coding & Documentation Courses from ERcoder
Fundamentals of ED Coding and Documentation
This in-service provides a clear introduction to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the American Medical Association (AMA) documentation guidelines. This seminar also covers typical documentation problems specific to emergency medicine - such as the documentation of procedures performed in the ED, accurate documentation of critical care services, and supporting documentation for diagnostic studies ordered through the ED.
This course can be scheduled as a short two- or three-hour in-service for physicians or coders and includes a detailed 30-page Evaluation & Management leave-behind for ongoing reference.
ED Coding - Beyond the Basics
This two- to three-hour presentation is designed for the experienced ED coder. Using real-life scenarios, it covers advanced and complex issues such as coding an E&M with a procedure, teaching physician services, PA services and others. Beyond the Basics incorporates references to CMS and CPT guidelines for the topics covered and includes time for Q/A.
PQRS for the ED Coder
PQRS is a Medicare initiative that offers financial incentives for participation in a voluntary quality reporting program. ED physicians who successfully report a designated set of quality measures on claims during the reporting period can earn a bonus payment for Medicare services. This presentation will help your coding staff understand the documentation requirements for reporting PQRS codes and how to accurately assign the codes for the services provided by the ED physician.
