Why Should You Attend:

The Annual Wellness Visit is covered by Medicare annually with no cost to the Medicare beneficiary. Providers are encouraged to perform this service for Medicare patients, but often do not document the required elements in order to bill for the service accurately. Without adequate documentation, Medicare will recoup payment when they audit medical records. If you want to keep your money in your pocket, you need to know how to document these visits correctly.

During this session, we will look at the documentation requirements to bill for the Initial Preventive Physical Exam (IPPE) or “Welcome to Medicare” visit and the Annual Wellness Visits. You will learn how and when to bill for other services provided on the same day. We will look at specific examples and share ideas. By the end of this series, you will be able to document and code annual wellness visits with confidence. Don’t miss this valuable training!
