In light of recent allegations of gross upcoding in therapy circles, an upcoming webcast on appropriate patient evaluation and management documentation could prove popular. Alva Baker, M.D., CMD, who has been a medical director for 29 years, will examine the relationships between E/M documentation and coding and billing. Topics within the webcast include a review of the billing codes for services provided to residents in the long-term care setting, as well as the E/M documentation system. The event will take place from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) on Thursday. It is sponsored by the American Medical Directors Association.
