Clinical Documentation, Coding, and Billing for Providers

When:  Jun 14, 2024 from 13:00 to 16:30 (CT)

This training will be provided from the perspective of a provider documenting in a medical record and will provide valuable perspective on how facility leaders, professional coders, and billing staff use the information in the medical record to extract data related to what services are documented (CPT and HCPCS-II codes) and why they were done (ICD-10-CM codes) and how their health center may need to adjust the codes on a claim to meet various payer rules. 

Our provider training class provides a complete overview of key resources, references, and responsibilities related to proper medical records documentation capture and proper reporting of the HIPAA mandated CPT, HCPCS-II, and ICD-10-CM code sets with a focus on Medicare since they serve as foundation for billing to many payers.  Medicaid is unique to each state, and it is difficult to provide accurate Medicaid billing advice.

The following groups will benefit from the session and are encouraged to attend: 

Providers who create clinical documentation (e.g., MD/DO/PA/NP/CP/CSW) in medical records and need training on the AMA’s CPT documentation guidelines, HCPCS-II coding, and ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes.
