New Jersey Billing Information

New Jersey Medical Billing and Insurance Information

New Jersey’s Medicare Part B Carrier is Novitas, formerly Highmark Medicare Services, Inc. There is a plethora of information located within the Novitas website. A provider or provider’s staff can find some valuable information on how to correctly code and bill practically anything navigating through the website.

A very valuable tool on the New Jersey Novitas website is the link to Evaluation and Management Services E/M: Complying with Documentation Requirements. The fact sheet describes common comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) Program errors related to Evaluation and Management (E/M) services and provides information on the documentation needed to support a claim submitted to Medicare for E/M services.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) developed the CERT Program to produce a National Medicare-Fee-For-Service (FFS) error rate, as required, by the Improper Payments Information Act. CERT randomly selects a small sample of Medicare FFS claims and reviews those claims and medical records from providers/suppliers who submitted them for compliance with Medicare coverage, coding and billing rules.

In order to accurately measure the performance of the Medicare claims processing contractors and to gain insight into the causes of errors, CMS calculates both a National Medicare FFS paid claims error rate and a provider compliance error rate. The results of the reviews are published in an annual report and semi-annual updates. CMS strives to eliminate improper payments in the Medicare Program to maintain the Medicare trust funds and protect patients.

E/M services are grouped into several different categories and subcategories of services based on the setting as an example, hospital or physicians office, and type of service, initial or a subsequent care visit. Within each category or subcategory, there are three to five levels of services that are specific to the category or subcategory of service. From April 2009 to May 2010 E/M professional services accounted for an estimated $28 billion in Part B payments on a national level. Based on the most recent data from the CERT Program, 8.4% of those E/M payments were identified as being billing at the wrong code level-either too high or too low.

The components of an E/M Service are broken into three key components. The first is history, the second is the examination and the third is the medical decision making. There are also three contributory components which are the nature of the presenting problem, counseling and coordination of care. Finally – Time. Time may be the primary component used to determine the level of service if more than 50% of the E/M encounter includes counseling and or coordination of care. In these cases, the time must be clearly documented; as well as more than 50% of the time was spent in counseling/coordination of care and a brief summary of counseling and/or coordination of care provided.

New Jersey’s Novitas is a great resource for finding correct coding methods for billing and what the expectations are in billing those certain levels.
