PROGRAM NOTE: Dedicated physicians need their evaluation and management (E/M) services accurately coded and documented in order to ward off investigations by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS OIG) and audits from third-party auditors. Coming soon will be an exclusive RACmonitor four-part, on-demand series on E&M that can help you protect your facility and physicians. Register now on the RAC University bookstore.
