Understanding Billing and Coding for the Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examination

Even the most seasoned health care professionals, billing, and revenue integrity departments experience missed revenue opportunities, which could potentially leave patients vulnerable to inadvertently receiving a bill from their sexual assault medical forensic examination. Understanding how to appropriately bill for the sexual assault exam is crucial to program sustainability, patient-centered care, and effectively bridging the divide so patients are not erroneously billed for services following their exam. At the conclusion of this webinar and with the guidance from a coding specialist, participants will gain increased knowledge regarding: the history of billing and coding; CMS documentation requirements related to billing; and, the complexity to critical care time, medical decision making, and evaluation and management in relation to billing for the sexual assault medical forensic examination.
