Key Tools for E/M Coding for Ob-Gyn Services

About the Webinar

Effective Evaluation and Management (E/M) coding is critical for the practicing obstetrician-gynecologist. Most problem-based office services have an E/M component and selecting the correct type and level of service can make the difference between success and failure in the operation of a practice. E/M coding is often considered to be confusing and risky, but a clear understanding of E/M coding principles is within reach.

At the conclusion of this session, the attendee should be able to:

  • Describe the differences between the CPT definitions for new and established patients
  • Construct appropriate documentation for the respective levels of outpatient E/M Services
  • Identify the most common opportunities to correctly report hospital E/M services
