Thorough and correct documentation of evaluation and management services provide the foundation for correct billing. Medical Coding Evaluation and Management, 1e provides an easy-to-read reference tool for thorough and effective documentation of any evaluation and management service visit. By focusing on the foundations of evaluation and management documentation guidelines, physicians, non-physician providers and other clinicians have the opportunity to understand the complexities of documenting any evaluation and management service correctly. Highlighting a variety of settings, readers learn about how to document medical history, physical examinations, medical decision-making, counseling and/or coordination of care, as well as intraservice time.
