Why should you attend: One of the most misunderstood aspects of documentation and E & M code level is Medical Decision Making (MDM). Very few coders receive instruction in the MDM scoring system using by many government and independent auditors. Even few providers are aware that these guidelines even exist. MDM is the number one reason for Downcoding encounters. In addition, very few EMR help score MDM and most allow an easy upcode that could result in refunds and fines during an audit.
