Documentation & Coding 101: Making Sense of the Dollars & Cents. Thursday, October 19, 2017


Reimbursement is changing from procedure-driven to outcome-based payment. It is every provider’s fiscal responsibility to understand the revenue stream within a practice.

Provider education focuses on the clinical aspects of training while barely touching the business side of generating revenue for a practice through correct documentation and coding for services. Evaluation and management (E&M) documentation guidelines provide criteria for level of history, physical examination and medical decision-making performed to secure a billable for the provider service. Without a thorough understanding in the utilization of E&M guidelines—documentation to support CPT and ICD-10 coding levels—practice revenue stream can be affected. Put simply, when a service is under-coded revenue is lost and when a service is over-coded the overvaluing increases potential liability. Providers who can accurately document and code their services and position themselves for the value-based reimbursement changes bring value to a practice and add to the evidence base for the quality and cost-effectiveness of provider care.
