Emergency Department (ED), also known as an accident & emergency department (A&E), emergency room (ER), emergency ward (EW) or casualty department, is a medical treatment facility specializing in emergency medicine, the acute care of patients who present without prior appointment; either by their own means or by that of an ambulance. The emergency department is usually found in a hospital or other primary care centre.
Due to the unplanned nature of patient attendance, the department must provide initial treatment for a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries, some of which may be life-threatening and require immediate attention. In some countries, emergency departments have become important entry points for those without other means of access to medical care.
Evaluation and Management (E/M) coding is the use of codes from the range 99201-99499 to represent services provided by a physician or other qualified healthcare professional. As the name E/M indicates, these medical codes apply to visits and services that involve evaluating and managing patient health. Examples of E/M services include office visits, hospital visits, home services, and preventive medicine services. Codes for services like surgeries and radiologic imaging are found outside of the E/M section of the code set.
There are more than two dozen categories of E/M codes, from office and other outpatient services to advance care planning. You may find further divisions within each category, such as separate options for new patients and established patients.
The code set uses the same basic format to describe the E/M service levels for many (but not all) categories:
• A unique code, such as 99203;
• The place and/or type of service, such as an office or other outpatient visit;
• The service’s content, such as a detailed history, a detailed examination, and medical decision making (MDM) of low complexity;
• The nature of the presenting problem or problems usually associated with a given level, such as moderate severity; and
• The time usually associated with the service, such as 30 minutes of face-to-face time.
Hierarchical Condition Category.
It refers to a system of medical coding used by insurance companies to determine patients’ future medical needs for the next year. Only life altering medical conditions are recorded in medical coding, such as a diabetes diagnosis, end stage renal disease, and others. HCC Coders only uses ICD-9-CM codes, which are the most commonly, used system of medical coding in US. 12 Error and omission codes, known as EO codes, are appended to the medical coding documentation when necessary.
This system of medical coding allows insurance companies to predict how much money will need to be allotted for certain people in the coming year. That’s why it’s extremely essential for medical coding to be done with complete accuracy and consistency.
