AAPC (http://www.aapc.com), the leader in credentialing the business side of medicine, is now accepting registration in an online course that addresses the common challenges of evaluation and management (E/M) coding. The course includes 10 hours of material in the form of lectures, texts, and quizzes, altogether worth 10 continuing education units (CEUs). E/M codes continue to be a tough area for coders of all experience levels when considering the CPT® guidelines, determining the level of service, modifiers, regulations, and the 1995/1997 documentation guidelines.
“Our online modules take you through the fundamental principles underlying all evaluation and management coding,” said Katherine Abel, AAPC director of curriculum. “In addition to basic evaluation and management coding, the course illustrates specialty-specific E/M documentation across several specialty fields and looks at the gray areas of coding E/M services.”
