Preventive medicine and Medicare wellness visits with a problem oriented visit
Recorded on May 21, 2020
While CPT® allows medical practices to bill for both a preventive service and an E/M. CMS allows practices to bill for both a wellness visit and an E/M. When to do it, and how to document the distinct and separate work of the E/M service, isn’t very clear.
This webinar will provide an overview of what is included in preventive services and Medicare wellness visits, and when a problem-oriented visit can be reported in addition. It will provide a framework for practices when determining when there is significant extra work performed and documented, supporting the addition of a problem-oriented visit.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- List what is included in preventive and wellness visits
- Implement a framework to determine if a separate E/M service should be reported
- Suggest communication messages to patients within their practices
