Insurance coding and billing is complex, but it boils down to how to accurately apply a code, or CPT (current procedural terminology), to the service that you provided. The payer then reimburses the service at a certain rate. As a provider, you will have to understand what codes to use and what documentation is necessary to support coding.

For this Assignment, you will review evaluation and management (E/M) documentation for a patient and perform a crosswalk of codes from  DSM-5-TR to ICD-10.

· Explain what pertinent information, generally, is required in documentation to support  DSM-5-TR and ICD-10 coding.

· Explain what pertinent documentation is missing from the case scenario, and what other information would be helpful to narrow your coding and billing options.

· Finally, explain how to improve documentation to support coding and billing for maximum reimbursement.
