Learn About CPT Coding Tips: The Codes You Probably Forgot To Bill

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Learn About CPT Coding Tips: The Codes You Probably Forgot To Bill. In addition to determining payment, Medicare also dictates what documentation is required in the patient’s medical record to justify billing any given CPT code. As we are going to see today, there are some pretty major changes in CPT coding and documentation this year, particularly for outpatient office visits. With that as an introduction, let me introduce today’s guest. Dr. Neeraj Tayal. Dr. Tayal is a general internist and Professor of Internal Medicine at the Ohio State University. He is going to start off today’s program with an overview of changes in outpatient office visit coding. For the second half of today’s webcast, I’ll be updating you on some of the outpatient and inpatient codes that many physicians don’t know about and can help ensure that you are being reimbursed for services that you are probably already providing.

On-line CME Webcast Educates On Fall Prevention in Older Adults

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 On-line CME Webcast Educates On Fall Prevention in Older Adults. One of the challenges of being a bipedal species is that we have a higher center of gravity than most animals. And so we can fall easier and when we do, our bodies can pick up relatively more momentum before hitting ground. The result is that every year, millions of Americans suffer a fall and one out of five falls results in serious injury. Total costs: 31 billion dollars a year. On this CME webcast, we’re going to take a look at falls, their risk factors, their medical effects, and what we can do to help prevent our patients from falling. Joining our moderator in the studio is Assistant Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Dr. Joseph Rosenthal and also, physical therapist and the clinical manager for the programming of falls prevention, ReNea Owens.
