In February, IDSA held a billing and coding webinar for members and their staff that answered tough questions related to Medicare's decision to eliminate payments for consultation codes and other evaluation and management (E&M) coding issues relevant to the practice of infectious diseases.
The “Hot Topics in E&M Coding for the ID Practice” webinar covered:
- what codes to use in place of the consultation codes
- how to bill other payers for consultative services and documentation requirements
Members can view the webinar slides on the IDSA website. (You must be logged in to access this link.) For more information about Medicare’s decision, see this earlier IDSA News article. A related article in this issue provides information about updates to IDSA’s correct coding resources. IDSA members and their staff may also send billing and coding questions to the “Ask the Coder” e-mail portal.
