This week in Buffalo- PMI will present new instructor-led webinars with long-time PMI host Catholic Medical Partners.
PMI is a proud educational partner of Catholic Medical Partners in Buffalo, NY. For 27 years, we have joined forces to provide quality educational and credentialing programming to local and regional medical practice staff, and we’re thrilled to kick off yet another year of much needed programming to keep practice staff in the know.
Leading the 2024 Reimbursement Update: CPT© and Medicare Compliance and Mastering EM Coding sessions will be PMI faculty presenter Audrey Coaxum, CHC, CPC, CEMC, CMC, CMIS, CMOM, CMCO. Audrey is an exceptional instructor, and is known nationally for her easy to follow teaching skills and exceptional knowledge base.
New CPT® code and regulatory changes for 2024 will go into effect on January 1st. Numerous proposals include conversion factor payment increases for primary care / direct patient care, caregiver training services, and services involving community health workers, care navigators, and peer support specialists. The implementation of a separate add-on payment for HCPCS code G2211 is also proposed, which is expected to improve the accuracy of payment for primary and longitudinal care.
In the morning session, Audrey will help prepare attendees for the impact of coding and regulatory changes. This annual update program will help students forecast the impact on billing for their particular specialty in 2024. The training will help participants reduce denials and stay in compliance in the New Year. All proposed key changes to the procedural code set, guidelines and issues that may impact provider reimbursement are being addressed.
E/M lays the groundwork for the reimbursement process. It is also a well-known audit trigger. In the afternoon Mastering EM Coding session, Audrey will provide the tools needed to internally monitor billing compliance. Participants will learn to relate accurate code selection to proper reimbursement, and will receive a comprehensive explanation of E/M coding and documentation guidelines, and identification of accurate and clinically useful information.
Huge shout out to Lea Passage, MHA, CLP, Physician’s Relations Specialist, for once again playing host, and for continually having the backs of her providers and staff.
