“Coding Basics: Getting Paid for What You Do”
Jeannine Z. P. Engel, MD
Assistant Professor of Medicine
Vanderbilt University Medical Center
Narrated PowerPoint Video (45 minutes)
This video teaches the basics of how to code and bill outpatient Evaluation & Management (E&M) services. While this recording predates the elimination of consult codes, the Initial Preventive Physical Exam (IPPE), and the Annual Wellness Visit (AWV), it is still accurate and relevant. This presentation is for the paper-based practice - it does not address issues and precautions related to EHR use, such as cloning, re-use, checklists, and errors in typed or dictated notes. Please disregard the few slides regarding consultation codes. (June 2012)
