Best Practices for E/M Coding and Other Time-Based Services
We’re giving you insights and best practices so you can feel confident documenting and billing time-based services.
All time-based codes are not created equal, meaning providers and coders are often confused about the correct number of billing units to report.
When can time be rounded up to the next time increment and when does it need to be exact? When is code selection based on face-to-face time versus total visit time? We’re tackling these questions and more in our upcoming webinar so you can code with confidence.
