Decoding the Enigmatic Code G2211 Talk Ten Tuesdays

    • News

Shrouded in controversy, the HCPCS code G2211 was released in 2021, proposed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to pay physicians and other qualified healthcare providers for the additional work required to adequately care for patients with serious or complex conditions. The code is now payable for calendar year (CY) 2024. 

The journey for this code to become payable has been fraught with obstacles. First, to financially support it, CMS slashed the conversion factor (CF). Second, CMS released the code without any true documentation guidelines on what exactly would need to be notated in the medical record to support billing. Third, some think there may be conflict between the HCPCS code and the medical decision-making (MDM) component of the Evaluation and Management (E&M) Documentation guidelines recently adopted by both CMS and the American Medical Association (AMA). 

During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, Leonata Williams will report on some of the nuances regarding this new code. She will also provide important best practices while America’s healthcare system awaits additional guidance from CMS.
 
The live broadcast will also feature these other recognizable segments:

•Coding Report: Laurie Johnson, senior healthcare consultant with Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, will report on the latest coding news.

•Social Determinants of Health: Tiffany Ferguson, CEO for Phoenix Medical Management, Inc., will report on the news happening at the intersection of medical record auditing and the social determinants of health (SDoH). 

•News Desk: Timothy Powell, CPA, will anchor the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk.

•TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc. and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, will report on a subject that has caught her attention during her popular segment.
