Description:

The webinar discusses the aspect of recognizing and recording a patient ‘s visit as a new patient vs. an established patient. It also elaborately explains the way different CPT code options affect the reimbursement for these visits.

There are three types of visits to the office under CPT in which a provider can determine depending on the connection of the patient with the practice. Many queries exist regarding when a patient can be recognized as a new patient to a provider, still while someone else within the practice has priorly examined the patient. The guidelines in CPT clarifies the conditions when a patient is recognized as new vs. established, except insurance providers, including Medicare, have their policies to acknowledge a new patient. 

The webinar session will view at the ins and outs of choosing new vs. established visits but also review consultations as an alternative that is still accessible and payable by numerous insurance carriers. It will elaborate on the reimbursement for these three categories of codes to comprehend the financial difference. Moreover, discussing the documentation standards of the three categories to reveal some surprises that you might not be aware of them.
