Program Overview
Evaluation and management (E & M) codes continue to be misunderstood and misused by physicians. Medicare and private payers have responded by targeting E & M services for audit. This workshop will focus on coding and documentation rules for choosing a correct E & M category and level of service, specifically for the vascular surgeon. Differences between Medicare and private payers will be reviewed.

Learning Objectives
At the end of the session, participants should be able to:
• Describe the coding and documentation rules for key E & M categories.

• Discuss the correct use of E & M modifiers in vascular surgery.
