Become a pro at assigning, verifying, and auditing E/M codes.

The Evaluation and Management Boot Camp—Professional Version™ provides detailed information on the intricacies of E/M coding and teaches you how to perform effective audits.

This intensive two-day course goes beyond the basics and dives right into the many gray areas of E/M to make sense of conflicting information between CMS and local carriers. Armed with this information, you’ll be able to:

  • Tackle the subjectivity associated with the most commonly reported (and audited!) CPT® codes—E/M services
  • Accurately interpret the rules
  • Maximize E/M audits


The Evaluation and Management Boot Camp—Professional Version teaches coders, billers, auditors, and practice managers how to interpret documentation relative to national carrier guidelines, apply rules accurately, and ensure appropriate E/M category and level assignment.

You will learn how to:

  • Select the correct E/M codes based on the documentation provided
  • Explain the documentation requirements for all E/M levels
  • Append appropriate modifiers to E/M codes
  • Apply "teaching physician" rules correctly
  • Identify key areas to conduct a successful E/M audit
  • Interpret national and local carrier guidelines
  • Prepare for the Certified Evaluation and Management Coder (CEMC) exam
