Coding and Compliance in 2023

Happy New Year from the HBE Advisors team!  

As we begin 2023, it is a great time to validate your coding and compliance programs are up to date with the latest CPT, ICD-10 and HCPCS releases and that your auditing and monitoring program includes the latest risk areas.

January 1, 2023 was the effective date for many important updates and changes.  It is a great time to verify your organization is ready, starting with these common action items:

  • Charge description masters (CDMs) should be reviewed and updated in compliance with the 2023 code changes and pricing should be evaluated based on the fee schedule updates
  • System coding and billing updates should be implemented to accomodate the 2023 code changes
  • Coders should be educated on the new documentation, coding and coverage guidelines
  • Clinical staff should be educated on the new documentation, coding and coverage guidelines
  • Auditing and monitoring work plans should be updated to address common risk areas such as:
    • Medicare annual wellness visits
    • Evaluation and management services
    • Advance care planning
    • DRG assignment
  • Policies and procedures related to documentation, coding, billing and compliance should be reviewed and updated
