You can now get paid more for helping your patients manage their chronic pain – if you know how to correctly utilize the new 2023 codes G3002 and G3003.
These new codes make it easier for you to justify and get paid for the chronic pain management services you provide. How? Unlike billing for other chronic pain services, Medicare has clearly spelled out what constitutes “chronic pain.” Previously, this definition was not clear. Knowing how to decipher and implement the definition of chronic pain can mean the difference between getting paid or providing these services for free.
Codes G3002 and G3003 bundle together multiple aspects of treating patients with chronic pain (i.e., assessment, diagnosis, monitoring, working with other clinicians, etc.).
The care you provide to patients with chronic pain can easily complicate your billing process, making getting accurately paid for these services harder than ever. This is where nationally recognized Coder and Educator, Kim Huey MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO, can help.
Kim will present a 60-minute online training that will walk you through exactly how to code and bill for chronic pain management services (G3002/G3003) more accurately so you can get paid more of what you are rightfully due. Here are just a few of the questions you’ll get answered during this online training:
- Can you bill an E/M office visit (99202-99215) with chronic pain management codes?
