Education & Training Resources Practice Guidelines Journals & Publications Policy & Advocacy Meetings About IDSA
June 2010
Education & Resources
Revised CPT Coding Resources Available

Updated inpatient and outpatient coding resources were mailed to IDSA members last month. The updated content includes 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.

Log in to the IDSA website to access the ID-Specific Correct Coding Resources to download these and other coding tools. Additional hard copies of the coding resources can be purchased for a small fee by downloading and completing the order form available here (PDF). In addition, IDSA is also preparing coding resources for handheld devices; more information will be available soon. Please contact Jason Scull at jscull@idsociety.org with any questions or concerns.
