13 37 New Versus Established Clinic E/M Levels Split Billing Professional Bill Technical Bill 13

14 40 Medicare Regulations Medicare expects hospitals to Bill professional charges on a CMS-1500 and Technical charges on a CMS-1450 (UB-04) When the services are performed as an outpatient in a provider-based clinic by a clinician (physician, NP or PA) that is employed by the hospital Source: Medicare Claims Processing Manual, Chapter 3, Section 10, Chapter 25 and Chapter Medicaid regulations For NY Medicaid, physician services are carved out of the APG payment for all services provided in hospital outpatient settings Billed separately using the Medicaid Physician Fee Schedule Billed on the HIPAA 837P or 1500 Note Exception for OMH 41 Source: NY Medicaid APG Provider Manual, 42 New Vs.

15 43 New Vs. Established CMS Technical guidelines Established patient registered patient at the hospital w/in the past three years, that is, the patient has a medical record number that has been used within three years Specifically, beginning in CY 2009, the meanings of new and established patients pertain to whether or not the patient has been registered as an inpatient or outpatient of the hospital within the past 3 years. A patient who has been registered as an inpatient or outpatient of the hospital within the 3 years prior to the visit would be considered to be an established patient for that visit, while a patient who has not been registered as an inpatient or outpatient of the hospital within the 3 years prior to the visit would be considered to be a new patient for that visit. (source: Federal Register /Vol. 73, No. 223 /Tuesday, November 18, 2008 /Rules and Regulations 68677) 44 New Vs. Established NYS DOH Technical guidelines DOH reimburses outpatient hospital services on APG Medical visit reimbursement is based on the primary dx code Therefore the specific E/M level and new versus established does not directly drive reimbursement However, the charges will likely vary so the reported code may impact future reimbursement Reasonable to utilize either (1) a system similar to Medicare for reporting the E/M level or (2) a system similar to the commercials (i.e., professional guidelines) 45 New Vs. Established NYS Medicaid OMH Technical guidelines For OMH clinics, under Medicaid APGs, professional guidelines are used for determining the technical (facility) E/M level. OMH has stated that the E/M codes reported must be based on complexity and not time for both psychotropic medication treatment and psychiatric assessment. The professional E/M guidance that allows time as a factor when more than 50% is spent on counseling and coordination of care cannot be utilized.

16 46 New Vs. Established CPT Professional guidelines There is a decision tree in the book (2013 CPT ) A new patient is one who has not received any professional services from the physician or another physician of the exact same specialty and subspecialty who belongs to the same group practice, within the past three years. An established patient is one who has received professional services from the physician/qualified health care professional or another physician/qualified health professional of the exact same specialty and subspecialty who belongs to the same group practice within the past three years (pages 4 and 5, CPT 2013 Professional) 47 New Vs. Established CMS Professional guidelines A Definition of New Patient for Selection of E/M Visit Code - Interpret the phrase new patient to mean a patient who has not received any professional services, i.e., E/M service or other face-to-face service (e.g., surgical procedure) from the physician or physician group practice (same physician specialty) within the previous 3 years.

Established NYS Medicaid OMH Professional guidelines No professional bill OMH reimburses for professional services based on modifiers AF, AG or SA reported on a technical bill Source: NEW YORK STATE OFFICE OF MENTAL HEALTH - 14 NYCRR Part Clinic Treatment Programs - Interpretive/Implementation Guidance Website: 16

17 49 New Vs. Established Must keep each of these requirements in mind as you develop your technical (facility) clinic E/M guidelines 50 Development of Technical (Facility) Clinic E/M Guidelines 51 Hospital Technical Guidelines No national visit technical reporting guidelines - Must create and use hospital internal guidelines Critical that hospital develop and follow and audit against their own technical E/M guidelines Develop for Emergency department Type B emergency departments ( fast track ) And hospital based clinics 17

18 52 Technical E/M Guidelines 1. Follow the intent of the CPT code descriptor (designed to relate the level to the resource intensity) 2. Based on hospital (not physician) resources 3. Usable for compliance purposes and audits 4. Meet HIPAA requirements 5. Only require documentation that is clinically necessary for patient care 6. Not facilitate gaming or up-coding Technical E/M Guidelines 7. Written/recorded, well-documented, and provide the basis for selecting a specific code 8. Applied consistently 9. Not frequently changed 10.Readily available for FI or MAC review 11.Usable to verify coding decisions (either by other staff or outside sources) Options to Consider Diagnosis Driven Common in the ER Point System Other - Suggestions Must be based on technical services, must be documented, must be consistent Directly impacts Medicare reimbursement Must appropriately report new versus established E/M 18

19 55 Critical Care (99291) Exception Hospital must follow the CPT definition of 99291, Critical care, evaluation and management of the critically ill or critically injured patient; first minutes Critical care services provided for less than 30 minutes must be reported with an alternative E/M code (e.g., 99285) Time reported as critical care is the time spent by MD and/or hospital staff engaged in face-to-face critical care of a critically ill or injured patient Source: 56 Modifiers Modifier - 25 Separately Identifiable Medical Visit Needed when an E/M is reported in conjunction with an APC status S (significant procedure) or T (surgical procedure) Drug injection and vaccination codes are APC status S 19

20 58 E/M Medical Visit Clinic or ED E/M (e.g., 99214, 99285) Requires a modifier 25 when reported in addition to infusion services (status S or T) Report an E/M service only if a separately identifiable medical visit has been provided Do not report for standard nursing care provided as part of the infusion services 59 EKGs EKGs are APC status S (93005) If performed with a separately identifiable medical visit, the E/M will require a modifier Modifier - 59 Distinct Procedural Service Indicates a procedure or service was distinct or independent from others performed on the same day Documentation must support: Different session Separate lesion Different procedure/surgery Separate injury Different site or organ system Separate incision/excision [CPT book] 20
