Required Annual E/M Learning Course for CU Medicine Providers

Created: 02/18/2015 | Updated:  
Compliance education programs are mandatory and are conducted annually covering topics such as ethics and billing compliance to promote compliant behavior. Special attention is given to compliance and quality in the documentation, coding and billing of professional services. An essential component of the training will be to provide all with an understanding of federal guidelines regarding documentation to support correct coding and billing.

CU Medicine Annual Evaluation and Management (E/M) Training is mandatory for all SOM faculty members who are providing and billing for Evaluation and Management services.

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires providers to comply with a 5% or less error rate on billing and documentation. Due to this CMS standard, CU Medicine Board of Directors and Compliance Committee require the completion of a module and quiz that pertains to the provider’s specialty once every fiscal year. New or Onboarding providers will be required to complete a module and quiz within 30 days of their start date.
