Efficient Denial Management enables you to track denied claims and what is being or can be done to get them paid. (MGMA reports that 7%-14% of all claims are denied because of easily correctable inoffice errors)

9Its More Than Just TimeYou still need to document the visit!Does you System Check Codes or Prompt Needed Items.Codes 99201-99215 should be used depending on the complexity of the visitFor level 5 make sure the history meets the definition of comprehensive.A new patient is a patient who has not received any professional services (face to face) in the last three years.This time includes those you see for a different Dx.

10What is a Medicare Consult?conventional medical practice is physicians making a referral and physicians accepting a referral will document the request in the patients record. The results of the referral must be communicated.For in hospital cases the principle physician of record will append modifier AI on codes. Coordinate with Hospitalist!If physician is requested to see a patient in the ED, the emergency visit code should be used unless patient is admitted and then initial hospital care code should be used.

11How do you Bill?If the service is secondary to a primary service must use modifier 25 on the primary service.Smoking cessation requires a separate diagnosis code as does nutritional counseling.You dont have to be a PCP but annual visits are limited by type, smoking for example is 8.Make sure you are familiar with the coding instructions and as a guideline CMS for the first time has published time indicators. For example: 99213=15 minutes, 99214=25, 99215 =40 minutes, 99204 = 45 minutes.Dont forget the AI for your admitted patients.
