Revised CPT Coding Resources Coming Soon

In May, IDSA members who have indicated an interest in patient care will receive the Society’s updated inpatient and outpatient coding resources in the mail.  The updates include new information about how to maximize reimbursement by coding for prolonged service and critical care service time.  These revisions are especially important in light of Medicare’s decision to eliminate payments for consultation codes (see related IDSA News article). These resources include:

  • The inpatient correct coding pocket card, which provides evaluation and management (E&M) coding guidance related to consultations, admissions, subsequent hospital visit, prolonged services, and critical care.
  • The outpatient correct coding wall poster, which provides E&M coding guidance related to office consultations, new patient, established patient, and prolonged services.

IDSA will send more information about the updated resources in May. The current coding resources are available at www.idsociety.org/correctcoding.htm (log-in required).  Please contact Jason Scull at jscull@idsociety.org with any questions or concerns.
