Billing and Coding for Nurse Practitioners: Outpatient Visits

Billing and Coding for Nurse Practitioner

Listen up if you are a nurse practitioner who is:

  • New to the billing and coding process
  • Unsure if you are choosing the correct Evaluation and Management code
  • Wanting a better explanation and real life practice scenarios

Unfortunately in my nurse practitioner training, I received very little information about the billing and coding process.

When I started working as a new grad in a primary care clinic, I was overwhelmed. Not only with assessing, diagnosing, and treating the patient, but also on how to properly code the visit.

I had very little education or feedback on the billing and coding process through work and had to teach myself.

Then the 2021 Evaluation and Management changes for outpatient visits went into affect. I again had to learn the updates and ensure I was coding the clinic visits correctly.

I created The Billing and Coding Course: Outpatient Visits to help nurse practitioners feel confident choosing the correct Evaluation and Management CPT® code for a patient visit, so you can avoid over coding (and under coding!) ensuring you receive proper insurance reimbursement!

About the Billing and Coding Course

P.S. Worried about the financial investment?

Ask your employer to cover the cost! I have had many NPs ask their boss to purchase the course or had it included as their continuing education money!

The Billing and Coding Course benefits both you and your employer! I mean, what kind of boss wouldn’t want their nurse practitioner to ensure they are properly coding the patient encounter. The knowledge gained in this course means more money for the employer and increased value for the nurse practitioner!
