Use E/M coding audits to train your physicians



As discussed in the April MCCRA, a coding audit is an excellent tool for physician practices to determine what, if any, problems exist in their claims submissions, particularly for E/M codes. Part II of this coding spotlight illustrates how to use the findings of your audits to help your physicians improve their coding practices. E/M codes affect not just outpatient or office consultations but home, skilled and unskilled nursing facilities, and ED visits, says Jennifer Swindle, RHIT, CCS-P, CPC-EM-FP, CCP, senior coding consultant at PivotHealth in Lafayette, IN.
