Modifier 25: Where, When, and How to Use It Correctly

5/14/2024
As if buried in shifting sands like a booby trap, Modifier 25 is poised to wreak havoc on claims when it’s appended incorrectly to an evaluation and management (E&M) charge – typically to indicate a separate service on the same date of service. So, what’s a provider to do? When is it actually appropriate to append Modifier 25? How do providers indicate that there was a significant yet separately identifiable E&M service that went above and beyond the typical pre- and post-work associated with the applicable procedure? And how can providers avoid a possible audit by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG)? In response to these and other questions, ICD10monitor and Talk Ten Tuesday have invited Leonta Williams, AAPC Director of Education, to serve as the broadcast’s next special guest. The live broadcast will also feature these other recognizable segments: • Coding Report: Laurie Johnson, senior healthcare consultant with Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, will report on the latest coding news. • News Desk: Timothy Powell, ICD10monitor national correspondent and regulatory expert, will anchor the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk. • Social Determinants of Health: Tiffany Ferguson, CEO for Phoenix Medical Management, Inc., will report on the news happening at the intersection of medical record auditing and the social determinants of health (SDoH). • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc., and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, will report on a subject that has caught her attention during her popular segment.

Is There a Code for Greed?

5/7/2024
The ongoing consolidation of independent physician practices, in many cases resulting in ownership by private equity groups and large health systems, is causing a shift from traditional medicine to the corporate practice of medicine. The result often is not in the best interest of patients, given that the focus tends to be on maximizing profits rather than patient care. What are the solutions to this ongoing crisis? During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesday, Nathaniel Arana, founder and CEO for NGA Healthcare, will offer specific strategies you can implement to prevent your practice from the possibility of being acquired by private equity. The live broadcast will also feature these other recognizable segments: • Coding Report: Laurie Johnson, senior healthcare consultant with Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, will report on the latest coding news. • News Desk: Timothy Powell, ICD10monitor national correspondent and regulatory expert, will anchor the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk. • Social Determinants of Health: Tiffany Ferguson, CEO for Phoenix Medical Management, Inc., will report on the news happening at the intersection of medical record auditing and the social determinants of health (SDoH). • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc., and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, will report on a subject that has caught her attention during her popular segment.

Transforming Patient Access Services: A Blueprint for Healthcare Success

4/16/2024
Properly managed patient identity queues are the foundation of an effective master person index that minimizes issues and facilitates streamlined care coordination. Conversely, unresolved identity queue backlogs can have costly implications for patient care, safety, and revenue integrity.

Data Breaches: What Every Coder Needs to Know

4/2/2024
The continued onslaught of cybersecurity attacks is only getting worse. These attacks have impacted the healthcare system in dramatic fashion, starting with the Change Healthcare payment network being brought down. Hopefully, everyone – including coders – will be more vigilant and wary of potential attacks and attempts to breach security. The constant development of new approaches and innovative tools means that if you or your facility have not yet been subject to an attack, it is likely only a matter of time before this comes knocking on your door. In helping providers get prepared, ICD10monitor and Talk Ten Tuesdays (TTT) have invited Nick van Terheyden (aka Dr. Nick), the clinical specialist at Iodine Software, to share his recent experiences and insights – and to offer some suggestions on how you might be fooled and what you can do to protect yourself, your business, and your family.

New Code W44: The Ins and Outs of New Foreign Bodies

3/26/2024
In a move towards greater specificity, the nation’s healthcare providers have a new ICD-10-CM code category: Code W44. Having gone into effect October 2023, the new code category (foreign body entering into or through a natural orifice) is seen as enhancing specificity, although Code W45 had already existed for foreign bodies entering through the skin. During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, Gina Yacovelli, DHSc, associated with Coding & Billing Solutions, will report on how and why pediatricians are the most likely provider group to benefit from the increased detail, while noting that the greater level of specificity will be helpful to all providers when such encounters arise.

The Code that Keeps on Giving: G2211

3/12/2024
Code G2211 continues to be a gift disguised as something else. As many nuances surrounding the code continue to linger, there are still some areas that are not as clear-cut as many healthcare professionals would prefer. As a refresher, G2211 allows providers (primary care, as well as specialists) to bill for additional cognitive work effort that is not currently captured in the evaluation and management (E&M) codes typically billed for these services. One of the gray areas surrounding G2211 is the appropriate amount and/or type of documentation that should be noted in the medical record to support billing the code. Another issue involves the specific type of condition(s) that can trigger it, and what qualifies it for a high level of complexity. During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, AAPC’s Leonta Williams will continue to explore these nuances and provide updates based on the latest communication(s) from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on proper code usage – and the criteria needed to stay out of hot water. The live broadcast will also feature these other recognizable segments: • Coding Report: Laurie Johnson, senior healthcare consultant with Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, will report on the latest coding news. • Social Determinants of Health: Tiffany Ferguson, CEO for Phoenix Medical Management, Inc., will report on the news happening at the intersection of medical record auditing and the social determinants of health (SDoH). • News Desk: Timothy Powell, CPA, will anchor the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk. • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc. and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, will report on a subject that has caught her attention during her popular segment.

Safe Handling Instructions for Code G2211

2/20/2024
What are the “do’s” and “don’ts” for the safe handling of HCPCS code G2211, used to report payment to physicians and other qualified healthcare providers for the additional work required to adequately care for patients with serious or complex conditions? The code is now payable for the 2024 calendar year (CY). Not only has the code quickly become enigmatic, in the lexicon of medical record coding, but it also must be handled with care – as if operating a powerful band saw. On the surface, the code seems to be relevant and purposeful. But underneath its benign exterior is a complicated network of conditions that could thwart the best efforts of the most healthcare professionals. That is why –- in the interests of baffled coders and clinical documentation integrity specialists (CDISs) –- ICD10monitor and Talk Ten Tuesdays have invited Ronald Hirsch, MD, the permanent (and popular) panelist on Monitor Mondays, to provide his assessment of the code, while concurrently offering his list of do’s and don’ts for its implementation, during the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays.

Searching for a New Z Code: Psychopathologies

2/6/2024
We are all familiar with DSM-5 and ICD-10 for the classification of various mental disorders. Both, but especially ICD, also cover some of the social conditions needing medical attention that may or may not be connected to the primary disorder or illness. ICD does that in the Z codes. However, Z codes are used infrequently. Moreover, many social problems harmful to individuals, groups, and countries seem resistant to elimination – think racism, sexism, ageism, antisemitism, Islamophobia, cultish thinking, and burnout. During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, award-winning author H. Steven Moffic, MD, considered among the world’s most renowned psychiatrists, will offer a classification of what he collectively calls the “social psychopathologies” that mentally harm both perpetrators and victims – and will suggest remedies that could lead to new research and interventions.

Decoding the Enigmatic Code G2211

1/23/2024
Shrouded in controversy, the HCPCS code G2211 was released in 2021, proposed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to pay physicians and other qualified healthcare providers for the additional work required to adequately care for patients with serious or complex conditions. The code is now payable for calendar year (CY) 2024. The journey for this code to become payable has been fraught with obstacles. First, to financially support it, CMS slashed the conversion factor (CF). Second, CMS released the code without any true documentation guidelines on what exactly would need to be notated in the medical record to support billing. Third, some think there may be conflict between the HCPCS code and the medical decision-making (MDM) component of the Evaluation and Management (E&M) Documentation guidelines recently adopted by both CMS and the American Medical Association (AMA). During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, Leonata Williams will report on some of the nuances regarding this new code.
