JustCoding’s E/M Essentials Toolkit
Medicare and other payers hold physicians responsible for correct billing and medical documentation. Evaluation and management (E/M) codes are the most frequently reported and, unfortunately, also the most audited for physician practices.
JustCoding’s E/M Essentials Toolkit is the essential resource for every physician practice, perfect for educating coders and billers—as well as physicians themselves. The toolkit, written by HCPro regulatory specialist Peggy S. Blue, MPH, CPC, CCS, CCS-P, CEMC, provides the core pieces for E/M coding education, simplifying Medicare guidelines, providing updates on the latest changes, and giving healthcare professionals the tools they need to help ensure accurate reimbursement.
This toolkit includes five E/M coding pocket guides, an E/M coding resource compendium, an E/M reference guide to the latest changes and developments, and a downloadable E/M audit tool sheet.
