Don’t Let Revenue Slip Away: Keep Level 4 Patients From Being Coded As Level 3!

Picture this: A medical director sits in a dimly lit office, surrounded by patient charts. With steady hands and keen eyes, he carefully reviews each chart to determine the level of complexity of each visit. He is aware that any missteps can cost his practice thousands of dollars and tarnish his reputation as a reliable medical director. This delicate balance between coding too low—risking revenue—and too high—risking non-compliance with regulations—is a difficult challenge that requires both skill and experience.
Unfortunately, that scenario is all too common in urgent care centers (UCCs) across the country. Many UCCs are not aware of the risks of incorrectly coding level 4 patients as level 3. This can lead to significant losses in annual practice revenue. Thankfully, this seemingly complex problem can be solved with one simple solution: ExdionACE. Let’s take a closer look at the issue of incorrectly coding level 4 patients and how ExdionACE can help to ensure accurate coding.

The Consequences Of Coding Level 4 Patients At A Level 3 Visit

At UCCs, patient visits are typically classified as either a level 3 or level 4 depending on the complexity of the visit. Level 3 visits are straightforward, while level 4 visits are more complex and require a higher degree of medical decision-making (MDM). Unfortunately, making the mistake of coding level 4 patients at a level 3 visit can be dire.
For example, physicians can miss out on further assessment and diagnosis that is necessary for proper care. Additionally, if the patient’s condition requires additional tests or treatments, these would not be reflected by using the lower-level code. This means the physician is not getting credit for all their work, and their practice is losing out on that revenue.
Another consequence of incorrectly coding a level 4 patient at a level 3 visit is that medical insurance companies may not cover the entire cost of the visit or reimburse for all services rendered. This can result in substantial financial losses for both the UCC and their patients, as they are not able to get full reimbursement for their work. Furthermore, if an insurer discovers a procedure or test was recommended but not completed because it wasn’t coded correctly, this can lead to even more lost revenue.
