    Good News: The Flip Side of Social Psychopathologies

    Good News: The Flip Side of Social Psychopathologies

    During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, award-winning author H. Steven Moffic, MD, considered to rank among the world’s most renowned psychiatrists, will report on what he calls “social psychoexemplaries” – the other side of what he reported two weeks ago on social psychopathologies.
    Moffic, in his popular daily column in Psychiatric Times, recently mused on the notion of positive social psychiatry, writing “I have come to wonder if positive psychiatry can be expanded to positive social psychiatry, meaning to groups besides individuals. In other words, are there positive social psychiatry group characteristics?”
    Learn more about how positive social psychiatry might be a part of your daily experience.

    Safe Handling Instructions for Code G2211

    Safe Handling Instructions for Code G2211

    What are the “do’s” and “don’ts” for the safe handling of HCPCS code G2211, used to report payment to 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 the 2024 calendar year (CY).
    Not only has the code quickly become enigmatic, in the lexicon of medical record coding, but it also must be handled with care – as if operating a powerful band saw.
    On the surface, the code seems to be relevant and purposeful. But underneath its benign exterior is a complicated network of conditions that could thwart the best efforts of the most healthcare professionals.
    That is why –- in the interests of baffled coders and clinical documentation integrity specialists (CDISs) –- ICD10monitor and Talk Ten Tuesdays have invited Ronald Hirsch, MD, the permanent (and popular) panelist on Monitor Mondays, to provide his assessment of the code, while concurrently offering his list of do’s and don’ts for its implementation, during the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays.
    The live broadcast will also feature these other recognizable segments:
    • 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.

    Achieving high-performing revenue cycle management (RCM) begins with understanding where your healthcare organization falls on the RCM Maturity Framework, according to Matt Bridge, senior vice president for AGS Health.

Bridge will begin the first installment in his three-part series on the contemporary challenges facing revenue cycle management personnel during the popular weekly Internet radio broadcast.

    Searching for a New Z Code: Psychopathologies

    Searching for a New Z Code: Psychopathologies

    We are all familiar with DSM-5 and ICD-10 for the classification of various mental disorders. Both, but especially ICD, also cover some of the social conditions needing medical attention that may or may not be connected to the primary disorder or illness. ICD does that in the Z codes. 

    However, Z codes are used infrequently. 

    Moreover, many social problems harmful to individuals, groups, and countries seem resistant to elimination – think racism, sexism, ageism, antisemitism, Islamophobia, cultish thinking, and burnout. During the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, award-winning author H. Steven Moffic, MD, considered among the world’s most renowned psychiatrists, will offer a classification of what he collectively calls the “social psychopathologies” that mentally harm both perpetrators and victims – and will suggest remedies that could lead to new research and interventions.

    There’s a New Code in Town: Condition Code 92

    There’s a New Code in Town: Condition Code 92

    New Condition Code 92 is here, and it’s effective now. The code outlines the billing requirement for intensive outpatient program services for hospital outpatient departments, critical access hospitals (CAHs), and community mental health centers (CMHCs). 
    To explain what you need to know about correctly billing the new Condition Code 92 during the next weekly edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays will be Rose T. Dunn, past president of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), and currently the COO for First Class Solutions. 
    But wait – there’s more. Dunn will also report on the latest news related to the electronic submission of medical documentation (esMD). Furthermore, she will report on a proposal to the appeal process so that Medicare beneficiaries could change their status from inpatient to outpatient.
    All this and more will be reported during the next live edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays.

    Decoding the Enigmatic Code G2211

    Decoding the Enigmatic Code G2211

    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.

Fun presentation

This would by nature be dry stuff but the way it is presented makes it fun and interesting- nonetheless packed with information so one has to pay attention - it is not bubble gum

Today’s episode 434

Overall I thought it was just okay because while most segments were very good, I didn’t understand what Dr Foggle was trying to accomplish. Your notes said he was going to give an update on COVID 19 but it seemed all he did was question the President’s doctors and their treatments. If he wants to be an analyst for a tv network and stir up conflict what he was doing might have been ok, but I was disappointed you gave him a forum on your podcast to spew his opinion. I expect more from a professional medical podcast

VACCINE HESITANCY WARFARE NOW?

This site has become a WHO and CDC mouthpiece. And the “facts” stated are opinions that are filled with the “buzzwords” and ridiculous recommendations. The use of words like “battle” and “war” against those who do not take the vaccine is dangerous and a precursor to discrimination. Where is our freedom to control my own body and make my own medical decisions? The moral high grounding over those who have or are going to take the vaccine is insulting of my intelligence. The current vaccines were tested on people for two months in small samples and not tested on animals. And there has never been a successful coronavirus vaccine created for the previous coronaviruses.
Your diversity lie was also insulting. Look at the low statistics in Africa where the draconian mandates are not being undertaken.

No, I do not trust you as you jump to the edicts of Dr. FAUCI and the WHO. You don’t cite your sources and express in your facts as opinions and I will no longer listen.
Stop the fear mongering!!
