Level of Program:

As practices are faced with an increasing number of audits, the need for E/M coding compliance is more vital than ever. Fear of audits can drive a practice’s coding and lead to reporting codes that are inappropriate for the work performed.

During this webinar, we’ll be identifying what types of visits result in under- or overcoding, so you can focus your efforts on improving coding accuracy and avoiding costly audits. Our expert speaker Terry A. Fletcher will deliver practical strategies to help you code the correct E/M level as well as adopt internal controls. You’ll be able to ensure full reimbursement, avoid leaving money on the table, and submit claims that are audit-free.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the top reasons E/M claims are denied during audits and how to avoid those problems
  • Implement an easy-to-understand, one-on-one physician training program to educate physicians using their own notes
  • Provide documentation that supports claims and helps to survive audits


  • History of present illness (HPI): Streamline your process for obtaining the HPI elements
  • Review of systems (ROS): Get the checklist that will provide solid documentation to support your claim
  • Past, family, and/or social history (PFSH): Avoid missing the one element that can change a level 5 visit to a level 2
  • 1995 or 1997 E/M guidelines? Settle the question for your practice
  • Medical decision-making (MDM): Does MDM really determine the correct code
