2 thoughts on “Why you Shouldn’t Automatically Bill an E/M with a Procedure

  1. This should be required for all proceduralists. In 20 yrs of practice, I had never heard about this file

  2. I know. I teach it in my General Surgery course. Unfortunately, CMS says “do” and “don’t” bill a separate E/M in the NCCI edits. “Separate and distinct” isn’t well defined.
    Thanks for the comment. I hope you’re reading my coding haikus on twitter. Everyone loves a coding haiku.
