MAFP is excited to announce a new complimentary practice management tool that is available exclusively to members. Now in its fourth edition, 2016 Strategies for Coding, Billing and Getting Paid Appropriately: A Guide for Family Physicians, is a must-have monograph for assisting Family Physicians with an essential component of day-to-day practice—coding and billing for the services you provide.
Coding appropriately and accurately is essential regardless of practice setting, size or payment mode, and it is increasingly important as the U.S. payment landscape transitions from reimbursing for the volume of medical services provided to the value of medical services provided.
By following the steps outlined in the monograph, your entire practice staff will learn how to improve practice documentation of visits and procedures; learn the language through which you can appropriately document and bill for a variety of services to third-party payers; enhance understanding of changes to Current Procedure Terminology codes; effectively use the ICD-10-CM code set to report the reason services were rendered and to support the quality of care provided to patients; and understand the importance of reporting quality data to support the newly proposed payment models.
