This session will discuss the code ranges for Transitional Care Management and Complex Care Coordination Codes, choosing the correct level within each range, what practitioners may provide the services, and the documentation requirements for billing the codes.
Why should you attend: Clinicians, EMR staff, coders and billers in outpatient settings. Medicare has expanded coverage of transitional care management and complex care coordination services. Many practices have not started using these codes due to a lack of understanding of the documentation requirements and the selection of codes in these 2 new code ranges introduced in January 2013.
Don't miss the opportunity to obtain reimbursement for the time your physicians and staff spend on patients who require medication reconciliation, orders and referrals to community agencies and navigation through their transition from inpatient facilities to home.
