Description: Description:

Every January, there?s a lot of expectancy around the changes to the CPT? codes. Improper documentation, errors in coding and out-dated psychiatric billing and coding procedures can result in thousands of dollars lost or fined. In addition, the knowledge base and process increase when adjustments are presented in documentation to ensure that your coding captures the story being told based on the patient?s condition and the reason for a visit. With these changes, it is more important than ever to it patient?s story correctly. That means you?ll have to polish your billing and coding skills so that appropriate coding is performed based on documentation in the medical record. Having these increased skills can avoid medical necessity denials in the new year.
