Many times it is helpful to find the Medicare expected CPT code frequency by specialty for E and M codes.
Here is a 2018 Link to the utilization download data. Some practices want to run their own analysis on whether their coding profile matches that for their specialty as paid by CMS.
This cpt code distribution will allow our firm to compare your utilization by specialty against all similar practices looking for discrepancies or differences that could spell danger or opportunity.
We recommend that at least annually you compare your Medicare coding distribution with Medicare’s to see if your coders have missed some changes or to see if you may be over or under coding your evaluation and management services.
If you want a sample or instructions of how to run this comparison, you should contact our office to run a percentage comparison against your practice utilization.
Again make sure that you regularly find the Medicare expected CPT code frequency by specialty and use it to troubleshoot your practice code distribution.
