Logical Medical Decisionmaking calculation

Private and government health plans are finding that office visits, consultations, inpatient visits etc. are a lucrative area for auditing and downcoding services retroactively. Some clinicians are vulnerable to retrospective coding audits due to insufficient documentation. Others routinely undercode their services, accepting significantly lower reimbursement for fear of being penalized in the future.

E&M coding is both a compliance and a revenue problem for most physician practices. Most clinicians tend to undercode established patient visits and overcode new patient visits (J Am Board Fam Prac. 2001; 14:184-192). Even determining the extent of the problem is going to be expensive. This tool may be used by Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC), however, no volume discount will be offered.

Learn to efficiently and effectively document and code E&M visits using the most sophisticated algorithm available.

Use STAT E&M LITE free of charge for new patient visits and consider upgrading to STAT E&M Coder for established visits as well as emergency department visits.
