Coding for Office Visits, Procedures, and Inpatient Services- LIVE!

What would coding be without change? As you kick off 2023, the last thing you want are disruptions in your practice as you get up to speed with the changes to the Evaluation and Management Services for hospital coding.  

KZA is here to help your practice start the year off right. This fast passed workshop can give you a foundation of knowledge to help you quickly embrace the new changes in the hospital E/M codes while reviewing the codes and guidelines for the Office or Other Outpatient E/M services.

In this course we will take an in-depth look at the new 2023 hospital E/M guidelines  and review the office or other outpatient E/M guidelines as we present them in the distilled understandable format that is KZA’s signature. We break down and explain the structured elements of Medical Decision Making and Time and demonstrate how they are applied using example scenarios.

Dive into the intricacies of incident to, direct, and split/shared billing for Medicare claims, with a focus on applying the CMS criteria.  New this year we will dive into Telehealth coding regulations (past, present and beyond)

As a result of attending this course, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate comprehension of the documentation coding guidelines for Evaluation and Management Services for office, outpatient and hospital
  • Demonstrate understanding of when to report consultation codes instead of other E/M codes to increase reimbursement when applicable.
  • Report E/M services with modifier 25 compliantly.
  • Distinguish the difference between the diagnostic endoscopy codes 31231, 31575 and 92511.
  • Describe the documentation requirements for using the cerumen removal code, 69210, and when an E/M code may be separately reported.
  • Apply E/M modifiers accurately.
  • Identify key requirements for “incident to”, direct and shared/split billing for Advanced Practice Providers (PA, NPs, CNSs).
  • Review the Telehealth regulations and how it can support quality of patient care while enhancing reimbursement.

Remodel Your Revenue Cycle - LIVE!

Is your practice as profitable as it could be? 

If you aren’t sure, attend this workshop.  It’s filled with urgent advice about how to seal up revenue leaks. Ask yourself:

  • Are my practice managers providing solid monthly reports—including detailed denial reports?
  • Do my Accounts Receivable reports separate patient-owed dollars from insurance debt?

If not, you need this workshop. We’ve seen badly managed practices leak up to six figures from gross income.

KZA education is based on real world consulting. We’ve taken a microscope to practices just like yours—whether you are in private practice, groups, hospital employed or in academia—and found the weak links.

We’ll show you how practice profits are lost including:

  • Delays in prior authorization and denials after submission
  • Worker’s Compensation plans that pay by credit card
  • Deceptive AR reports
  • Failure to collect patient deductibles and co-pays
  • Billing companies that figure “out of sight, out of mind.” (Sadly, they are often right.)

No more fudging! Learn the bookkeeping details that can grow your revenue—ethically and legally. Bring key staff. We guarantee a solid return for the time and money invested.

ENT Surgical Power Coding - LIVE!

It’s more important than ever to keep current with an understanding of new and existing codes which depend on coding accuracy.  The 2023 Otolaryngology surgical procedure coding course sifts through all that is new and important in Otolaryngology coding and packs it into an intensive, fast paced day. This year’s agenda covers all you need to know to code and document accurately and efficiently in 2023 and beyond.

 

The course describes why documentation is as essential as the code selected, and how to capture all potential revenue by improving your notes. We’ll show you the correct way to use surgical payment modifiers so that you optimize payment. You’ll leave armed with ideas and techniques for setting up systems that reduce denials and increase successful appeals.

 

The course also provides in depth and clinically relevant instruction on coding for Otology, Rhinology, Laryngology, facial plastics including repairs, ATTs and Flaps and Grafts.  Also included are head and neck procedures including, Parathyroid procedures, laryngectomies, skull base surgery and much more…

 

Learn the latest coding, billing, and reimbursement strategies for new technology in ENT procedures. Finally, we’ll end with hands on coding of Otolaryngology operative reports and how documentation impacts the code selection process.

 

A special feature this year, are the new and revised codes for Osseointegrated implants

 

Real-life cases and discussions that link clinical procedures to the selection of CPT codes make this course ideal for surgeons and coding staff. This course is rich with real life clinical scenarios and a comprehensive workbook that will become your first response coding resource.
