The quiz on main vs. subterms is helpful. I've also recieved your e-mail regarding the auditing work. I'm very interested in starting the work. I would be pleased to recieve additional charts.

Question #2 has a "correct" answer of 789.01;V82.89. Strictly according to your test question "abdominal discomfort, right upper quadrant, possible gall bladder disease" your answer is inncorrect. 789.01 is right, however V82.89 (Special screening for other conditions, other specified conditions) is nowhere in your test question. I dont think that it should be assumed that the patient was going in for a screening, there is no evidence to back it up. If your answer is right please direct me to the guidelines that justify your answer.

there are several incorrect answers in the medical terminology quiz section. musculoskeletal 2--question 5-scoliosis answer provided is D--it is just plain wrong. the correct answer is a lateral curve of the spine and the word is derived from greek for crookedness not hardening. medical terminology quiz--bronchoscopy--the correct answer it lists is nasal cavity--this is just wrong. There is no correct answer provided. It enters the lungs or trachea. Closest answer provided to me at least is throat as the tube enters the patient through the throat. osteoperiostitis--it lists inflammation of bone marrow as the correct answer. This is just plain wrong--it is inflammation of the dense fibrous covering of the outside of the bone.

I spent two hours today working on cpt module which i finished. There seems to me to be an error in the cadiology op report aortic valve replacement. i believe there should be an additional code, namely 35600 for obtaining the radial artery as the note under head arterial grafting for coronry artery bypass statesthat to report harvesting of an upper extremity artery, use 35600 in addition to the bypass procedure.

question 4 states head trauma, possible cerebral concussion. The correct answer is listed as 854.00, v80.0. I don't understand why. It seems to me that with this code you are assuming that there is intracranial injury for which you have no proof. also v80.0 would be incorrect because it has to be coded to the hhighest possible level which would be v80.01. traumatic brain injury. I would be happier coding this case as 959.01head injury, unspecified. Does anyone have any comments. isn't it correct that for inpatients you code diagnosis like "probable", "possible", "rule out" as if they existed, but in outpatient coding you can't do this but just code for the symptoms. if this quetion pertains to an outpatient then i don't think you can code it as if there were intracranial brain injury which is what 854.00 seems to be doing.

note

I spent two hours today working on the icd 9 module. I believe there are errors in the medical coding quiz, icd-9 quiz 3.5 multiple coding question 4--uremic neuropathy. The given answer is 583; 357.4. i believe it is an incomplete answer as 585 must be coded to the fourth digit so correct answer would be 585.9; 357.4. in quiz 3.7 diabetes question 2 diabetes osteomyelitis of shoulder (type II) given answer is 250,80; 731.8 but there is a tip in the notes say for diabetic osteomyelitis assign a total of three codes; 250.8x, 731,8 and code from category 730 which in this case would probably be 730.21. Also in question 3 of same section progressive diabetic nephropathy with mnalignant hypertension and chronic renal failure (type I) the given answer is 583.41; 403.01. There is a note under 403 saying it excludes renal disease stated as not due to hypertension. The way this question is stated is that the renal disease is due to diabetes. I think better code would be 250.41; 583.81; 403.00. To me category 403 is for renal disease caused by hypertension. True as the explanation to the question points out there is an includes note of nephropathy however, it is indented under hypertensive meaning it is hypertensive nephropathy and has nothing to jdo with diabetes. How say you? to use Mr. O'Reilley's phrase.

HCPCS Local codes were removed in 2003. You have 3 levels in the hcpcs mod. So there are only 2. ........................... Prior to December 31, 2003, Level III HCPCS were developed and used by Medicaid State agencies, Medicare contractors, and private insurers in their specific programs or local areas of jurisdiction. For purposes of Medicare, level III codes were also referred to as local codes. Local codes were established when an insurer preferred that suppliers use a local code to identify a service, for which there is no level I or level II code, rather than use a "miscellaneous or not otherwise classified code." The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) required CMS to adopt standards for coding systems that are used for reporting health care transactions. We published, in the Federal Register on August 17, 2000 (65 FR 50312), regulations to implement this part of the HIPAA legislation. These regulations provided for the elimination of level III local codes by October 2002, at which time, the level I and level II code sets could be used. The elimination of local codes was postponed, as a result of section 532(a) of BIPA, which continued the use of local codes through December 31, 2003.

ICD-9 Quiz 3.3 Suspected Conditions - Explanations Q4 Lots of controversy on this one. Rationale: Code the Head trauma as 854.xx intracranial injury of other and unspecified area, then fourth digit as 0 for without mention of intracranial wound; and a fifth digit of 0 for unspecified state of consciousness. This code includes "Injury brain NOS" which is better than code 850.xx (Concussion) because it is a "possible" concussion. Therefore we need to do a screening and thus the V80.01 code for Special screening for neurological, eye, and ear diseases. The .01 is selected because it is a traumatic brain injury.

note

I spent 90 minutes tonight on icd-9 module V codes and E codes. in quiz 3.15 E codes question 2 coma due to a combination of prescribed seconal and alcoholoic beverage the answer given 780.01, 967.0, #980.1 is okay but it accounts only for the seconal. For the alcoholic component should add codes 980.0, E 980.9 I think. quiz 3.15 E codes question 5 the answer given used code E922.4 which is for accidental shooting by a pellet gun. We are not given the history that this was accidental I would prefer code #985.6 injury by firearms, air gun and explosives, undetermined whether accidentally or purposely inflicted, air gun.you can not code by assuming.

I believe that there are some better answers than those given specifically for question 3: wound dehiscence the answer given is 998.3 however, this should be fully coded to the 5th digit as either 998.31 or 998.32. For question 5 disruption of a cesarean wound the answer given is 674.10 but a better code might be 674.14 for a postpartum condition or complication rather than the 674.10 answer as of unspecified as to episode of care or not applicable as the wound disruption can obviously only happen postpartum.

I spent an hour today working on the 520 question module and found a few questionable answers. urinary male questions #8--physician performed FNA of prostate--answer given in 88170:10021--i don;t believe this is correct--the fna code is 10021 but there is no code 88170. urinary female questions--#1 code for colposcopy with biopsy of the vulva via snare technique answer givenis 56820--this is just for colposcopy that for biopsy also is 56821; questions 8-10 all deal with questions about hymenectomy of varying degrees but the answers are given using the definitions for vulvectomy--a hymenectomy is not the same as a vulvectomy so the definitions do not apply. icd-9 test 1 question 9 is misleading as the answer indicates that the cancer is metastatic from the breast to the lung--this is an assumption as it is not so stated in the question body. You can not code on assumption.

I spent 2.5 hours today working on the 520 question module covering tests on icd-9 test 2, integumentary test 1,2 and 3. I found a few mistakes. icd-9 test2 question 3--the index for chills directs you to code 780.64 not 780.79 as indicated in the answer. icd-9 test 2 question 6 regarding speech disorder following encephalitis gives correct answer as V57.3, 7894.5, 1390 however, code 784.5 requires a 5th digit since the speech problem is not defined it would have to be 784.59. Integumentary test 1 and 2 no problem. In integumentary test 3 question #6 about needle localization of breast lesion gives answer as 192.90, 71096 but there is no code 71096 in cpt 2010 it would be either 76942 77031 or 77032. Question 7 in integumentary 3 test about male gyncecomastia has a list of answers which does not include the correct answer of 19300. Also the explanation notes for this code indicate that the code includes a lymphadenectomy with it--this is not so stated in the cpt 2010 code book nor in cpt assistant for Feb. 2007.

As per report notes, you can only enter 4 ICD-9 codes. If you use CPT modifier -22 for additional work required d/t obesity and diabetes, then don't you also need to report these ICD-9 codes in the 4 codes that you can report? The answer could be as follows: ICD-9 codes: `424.1`, `414.01`, `278.01`, and `250.00`. The CPT codes are as follows: `33405-22`, `33533-22-51`, and `33517-22`. I cannot find where CPT modifier -51 cannot be used for code `33517`; it doesn't list where code `33517` is modifier -51 exempt.

1) Plaquenil is used for more than Rhuematoid Arthritis 11) Our book has Idiopatic. Could be spelling, The test is Ideopathic,maybe that makes it wrong. 17) The 560.32 looks to both of us should be 560.30 18)Dosen't bilateral mean you need to code both sides? 25) Would'nt 967.0 & E980.1 be redundant? 33) 1 & 4 say same thing, different wording. 38)No answer seemed correct and explanation did not help. 41) Could not find anywhere. Don't know where to find. 43) Question says Patient desires procedure. Your answer means patient had procedure. 44)Question ask forcode, choices are definitions. 51) Laceration means open wound. 65) No answer correct.Need 850.12 for 45 minutes and no open wound listed. 89) What text book? Answers don't match ICD-9 or CPT 2011. 90)None listed as new. "Now includes" means new. 92)Right answer, wrong number. Should be 1. 93)ICD-9 Book says 998.32. 96)Both of us think 523.10 is the better choice. That is the first 100. I'll try to send the rest tomorrow.

I am preparing to take COSC exam for certification in Feb and need the most accurate and up to date information as possible. Going thru your practice test, I’ve come across some discrepancies and want to be sure I’m studying the correct answers: 56. Epiphyseal arrest – your answer sheet says #4: “also known as lengthening or shortening” however on the question sheet#4 says “a graft of the epiphyseal bone to strengthen it after a fracture” SHOULD BE: #2: bone lengthening or shortening 60. Arthrodesis – your answer sheet says #1: “creation of a juncture between to vessels or body parts” however earlier in the question sheet, same question #9 says Arthrodesis – fusing bones together. SHOULD BE: #3: fusing bones together 86. Code for bilateral Percutaneous Vertebroplasty with fluoroscopic guidance – your answer sheet says #1: 22516 However this code has been deleted in 2011 CPT manual so answer SHOULDE BE: #4: None of the answers are correct (OR YOU NEED TO UPDATE YOUR MATERIAL) 94. Code for the radical resection of a 2cm malignant tumor from the soft tissue of the right (that’s all it says, rest has been cut off) – your answer sheet says #1: 24079-RT but this code means 5cm or greater SHOULD BE: #1: 24077-RT less than 5 cm 95. Code for the removal of a 3cm tumor from the soft tissue of the left forearm. – your answer sheet says #4: 25075-LT but this code means less than 3cm SHOULD BE #2: 3cm or greater PLEASE RESPOND TO MY QUESTIONS WITH THE CORRECT ANSWERS WHETHER YOU ARE CORRECT OR I AM CORRECT, AND IF YOUR ANSWER IS, IN FACT, CORRECT, PLEASE PROVIDE ME WITH AN EXPLANATION, BECAUSE CLEARLY I DON’T UNDERSTAND.

No note saying it has been deleted or anything. It would be a good addition in my opinion to list on one of the slides where the Base units can be found. Again, they are not in my CPT book, I believe they are on some AMA website.

note

Dislocations (830 - 839) refer to dislocations without fractures. Box in Dislocation section should say Site of the dislocation and whether the dislocation is open or closed (rather than fracture). What wasn't mentioned in the dislocation section section is that dislocations associated with fracture is included in the fracture code. Reduction of the dislocation (associated with fracture) is included in the code for the fracture reduction. Might be good to include for clarification.

When are they - should be deleted. Q 40: Question page; answer choice 2: 99361 invalid code. 99361-99362 Team Conference deleted 2008. Replaced with 99366-99368 Interdisciplinary Conferences. Q 42: Question is on esophageal reflux tests. Answer key answer 3 is for critical care 99291 and thrombolytic therapy 92977. the correct answer is 91038 Esophageal function test, gastroesophageal reflux test with nasal catheter intraluminal impedance electrode(s) placement, recording, analysis and interpretation. Intraluminal electrode is being used. Test duration is prolonged so you would use 91038 (greater than 1 hour up to 24 hours), not 91037. No other errors found Q 1-50

I am working on Current Year-Representative Medical Coding Exam 1 questions, and I found the following in Questions 1-50: I did not find any errors in the question portion of questions 1-50. However, I found the following errors in the Answer Sheet to questions 1-50: The Answer Sheet is titled Current Year-Sample CPC Exam 1 Answers and Explanations, Page 1, Answer for QUESTION 1-Norplant is the "trademake" for an implantable.... This should be "Trademark" A long term contraceptive for women... according to http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Norplant In Current Year-Sample CPC Exam 1 Answers and Explanations, Answer for QUESTION 8, Page 1, I am uncertain if you are telling the students to look at the section 173.7 codes other malignant neoplasm of the foot...or if it should say ICD-9: Use the Neoplasm table. Site is skin, foot; it would be clearer to state Code 173.71 (new code for 2012) Basal cell carcinoma skin of lower limb, including hip. In Current Year-Sample CPC Exam 1 Answers and explanations, Answer to QUESTION 15, page 2, I disagree with 26755-F2 as the answer based on Page 91 of AMA CPT Standard Edition 2012 this code ....is with manipulation, each....but the question is "Code for a closed reduction and percutaneous pin fixation of fracture, left middle finger." The answer should be Code 26750-F2 (without manipulation) and 26756-F2.

Module 60,000 Series (nervous system), Question 55, (printed page19) Does it sound more appropriate to say “An identical procedure was performed on the opposite side” versus “An identical procedure was done to the opposite side? Module 60,000 Series (ear), Question 57, (printed page 20) the “s” should be capitalized in the phrase …of the drumhead, and using the Skeeter drill, since that is the registered brand name as stated at http://wwwp.medtronic.com/Newsroom/NewsReleaseDetails.do?itemId=1231164686813&lang=en_US. On this same question Answer 1: through Answer 4: should have either comma or the word “and” separating the procedures. For example, Answer 1: 69631-RT, 69990 or Answer 1: 69631-RT and 69990. Module Evaluation and Management, Question 62, (printed page 22) leave out the word “year” and add a hyphen between birthweight the first sentence should say Code for the hospital care for a three-day old, low birth-weight…. Module Evaluation and Management, Question 63, (printed page 22), 24 mo of age or less would read clearer if it said age 24 months or less. Module Evaluation and Management, Question 64, (printed page 22), Leave out-day in Answer 1: Use appropriate Subsequent Observation codes. Module Evaluation and Management, Question 66, (printed page 23), the gender of the physician keeps changing back and forth from he to she. I noticed the gender issue had already been mentioned by another student but since it had not been corrected I went ahead and mentioned it again). In the same question the word “never” should be changed to “Her services were not required, and she went home”. Module Anesthesia, Question 73, (printed page 24), a hyphen needs to be added to Anesthesia is performed for a laryngoplasty of a 45-day old infant. Module 70,000 Series (radiology), Question 80, (printed page 26), the sentence should be reworded to state “The upper extremity of a 9-month old child, was examined… Module 70,000 Series (radiology), Question 83, (printed page 26), CAT scan should be changed to CT scan for clarification as referenced in 2012 AMA CPT Standard Edition, page 494. In the same sentence the word “patient” should be removed and it should be “During the CT scan the abdomen was scanned. Module 70,000 Series (radiology), Question 84, (printed page 27),75 yo male should be changed to 75 year-old male. In the end of the second paragraph of the same question “has” should be replaced with “is” …suspicious infiltrates and the heart is normal size. Module 70,000 Series (radiology), Question 86, (printed page 27), the wording should be changed to Code for an angiography (arteriovenous shunt) including contrast performed on a dialysis patient. Module 70,000 Series (radiology), Question 87, (printed page 27), Answers 2 through Answer 4 should have commas separating the CPT codes. For example Answer 2: 86803, 86709, 87340. Module 80,000 Series (path/lab), Question 93, (printed page 29), misspelling of eimpedance elctrodes whereas, it should be nasal catheter intraluminal impedance electrode. Module 90,000 Series (medicine), Question 99, (printed page 30), wrong punctuation in Bacillus-Calmette Guerin it should be Bacillus Calmette-Guerin according to page 320 of the 2012 AMA CPT Standard Edition. I also found discrepancies in the answers to this module titled “Current Year-Sample CPC Exam 1 Answers and Explanations as follows. Answer to Question 63, (printed page 6), Answer 3: 99466 (first 30 to 74 minutes) and code 99467 (each additional 30 minutes) can not be correct for a total of 90 minutes according to the guideline listed above the codes on page 31 of AMA CPT Standard Edition 2012, page 31. None of the answers given are correct but I would code it 99466. Answer to Question 64, (printed page 7), I disagree with the answer and suggest using codes 99224, 99225, or 99226 per the guidelines for Initial Observation Care at the bottom of page 9, AMA CPT Standard Edition 2012, page 9. Answer to Question 100, (printed page 9), I suggest adding (for adults ages 18 to 64) to part of the answer to the Medicare code for Influenza virus vaccine, split virus, preservative free, since the vaccine is not recommended for adults older than 64 according to http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/vaccine/qa_intradermal-vaccine.htm I assume the majority Medicare patients are older than 64.

In the Answer for Question 252, (printed page 53) I am extremely confused by the answer and the comment on this question. Diagnosis code 465.9 is for Acute Upper respiratory infection of unspecified site (s). I would have coded this 465.9-Acute upper respiratory infection of unspecified site; 493.22-Chronic obstructive asthma with acute exacerbation; 401.0-Hypertension, malignant based on my understanding of the Coding Guidelines, Section 1, Conventions, general coding guidelines and chapter specific guidelines in 10.Acute and Chronic Conditions. I would think the acute exacerbation of the Chronic obstructive asthma would be caused by the acute upper respiratory infection. Thanks for the tip because if I had been taking the test I would have missed this question.

In Module 40,000 Series (digestive), Question 68, (printed page 15), the second code in Answer 3: CPT code 99141 is an invalid code. CPT 99141 was replaced in 2006 with 99143-99145 according to http://www.aafp.org/fpm/2006/0100/fpm20060100p28-rt1.pdf Since not time was given for the duration of the surgery I would code this as 55250; 99144. This is also listed incorrectly on the Answers & Explanations (printed page 5), 99141 should be changed to 99144.

In Module ICD-9-CM, Question 262, (printed page 55) there is a “0” or an "x" left off of the end of the Answer 4: in the third diagnosis 464.0 should be 464.00 or 464.0x since it is either with or without mention of obstruction. This is also listed incorrectly on the Answers & Explanations (printed page 17), …780.71 is chronic fatigue. 464.0 is acute laryngitis-(should be 464.0x).

In Module Modifiers, Question 286, (printed page 60), the answer to this question Free skin grafts (codes 15342-15343) were deleted in 2006 and replaced with 15170-15336 then changed again according to page 72 of the 2012 AMA CPT Professional Edition (15170-15176) have been deleted. To report see 15271-15278. Is the reason codes 15200-15261 are not the answer due to the full thickness graft, even though they all mention in their description 'free'? Or is it because they include direct closure of the donor sites?

HIPAA I of XI

note

(I added the information on HITECH for you) HIPAA I of XI Introduction and Overview HIPAA is the acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. The privacy and security provisions were defined by the Department of Health and Human Services or (HHS). The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is responsible for implementing various unrelated provisions of HIPAA. The goal of this course is to provide an introduction to HIPAA. There are two (2) broad categories of HIPAA implementation: The First is: The Privacy Rule provides federal protection for protected health information held By covered entities and gives patients an array of rights in respect to that information. The Privacy Rule is balanced in that it permits disclosures of information necessary To provide needed medical care. The Second is: The Security Rule specifies a series of specific administrative, physical, and technical Safeguards for covered entities to use to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and Availability of electronic protected health information. On July 27, 2009 the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) delegated authority for the administration and enforcement of the Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information (Security Rule) to the Office for Civil Rights (OCR). Congress mandated improved enforcement of the Privacy Rule and Security Rule in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. This action will improve HHS’s ability to protect individuals’ health information by combining the authority for administration and enforcement of the Federal Standards for health information privacy and security called for in HIPAA. The HIPAA Privacy Rule is also administered and enforced by OCR. CMS retains its authority for administering and enforcing the HIPAA Simplification Rules (Transaction & Code set Standards; Employer Identifier Standard; National Provider Identifier Standard). The ROLES of HIPAA includes: Protecting health insurance coverage for workers and their families for when they Change or lose their jobs. Requiring CMS to establish national standard for electronic health care transactions And national provider identification numbers for providers, health plans, employers: Addressing the security and privacy of health data. This is very important and has many implications for medical practices and independent billing organizations. The goal is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the nation’s health care system by encouraging the widespread use of health information exchange (HIE). HIPAA regulations impact consumers, employers, state regulators, self-funded, non-federal government plans, consumer employers, state regulators “protecting your health insurance coverage” and self-funded non-federal governmental plans. As a medical coder and/or billing specialist HIPAA will impact your job as it relates to privacy of information and information security. Most health organizations work with their Chief Compliance Officer, an attorney, or a reputable consultant to determine what actions are necessary to ensure HIPAA compliance. Healthcare operations comes under special scrutiny and the new provisions of HITECH will require organizations to pay greater attention to the precise use of the terms “internal use” and “external use” of protected health information. Below list some of the HIPAA areas reaffirmed by HITECH. Healthcare operations (164.501): Defined as activities of the covered entity as related to covered functions including conducting quality assessment and improvement; reviewing competence or qualifications of healthcare professionals; conducting healthcare professional training programs; underwriting, premium rating, and other health insurance benefits activities. Disclosure (160.103): release, transfer, provision of access to, or divulging in any other manner of information outside the entity holding the information. Use (160.103): sharing, employment, application, utilization, examination, or analysis of individually identifiable health information within an entity that maintains such information. There are significant criminal and civil sanctions for individuals who violate the act. Therefore, it is important for healthcare organizations and their personnel to comply with all HIPAA requirements. Subtitle D of the HITECH Act through several provisions that strengthen civil and criminal enforcement of the HIPAA rules Section 13410 (d) of the HITECH Act revises section 1176 (a) of the Social Security Act by establishing: • Four categories of violations that reflect increasing levels of culpability. • Four corresponding tiers of penalty amount that significantly increase the minimum penalty amount for each violation. • A maximum penalty amount of $1.5 million for all violations of an identical provision. It also amended section 1176(b) of the Social Security Act by: • Striking the previous bar on the imposition of penalties if the covered entity did not know and with the exercise of reasonable diligence would not have known of the violation (such violations are now punishable under the lowest tier of penalties); and • Providing a prohibition on the imposition of penalties for any violation that is corrected within a 30-day time period, as long as the violation was not due to willful neglect. Tiered Increases in Civil Monetary Penalties Failure to comply with requirements and standards of HIPAA may result in civil monetary penalties (CMP) of not more than $100 for each violation, with a total amount of all violations for an identical requirement during a calendar year to not exceed $25,000. HITECH created tiers distinguishable by cause and correction that became effect immediately. Circumstance Cost Per Violation Total for all identical violations during a calendar year not to exceed If a person did not know and by exercising reasonable diligence would not have known that he/she violated the law. $100 $25.000 Violation was due to a reasonable cause and not willful neglect $1,000 $100,000 Violation was due to willful neglect, but was corrected $10,000 $250,000 Violation was due to willful neglect, but was not corrected $50,000 $1,500,000 For a list of administrative procedures and practices see Appendix B There are three (3) Amendments to HIPAA: 1. Women’s Health & Cancer Rights Act The Women’s Health & Cancer Rights Act of 1998 (WHCRA) is a federal law that provides protection to patients who choose to have breast reconstruction in connection with a mastectomy. 2. Mental Health Parity Act The Mental Health Parity Act of 1996 (MHPA) is a federal law that may prevent your group health plan from placing annual or lifetime dollar limits on mental health benefits that are lower-less favorable-than annual or lifetime dollar limits for medical and surgical benefits offered under the plan. 3. Newborns’ Mothers’ Health Protection Act The Newborns’ and Mothers’ Health Protection Act of 1996 (NMHPA) affects the amount of time you and your newborn child are covered for a hospital stay following childbirth. To simplify readability and the audio commentary, this course does not include the CFR location and numbers from the original HIPAA document. If you want to crosscheck the Code of Federal Regulations Part and Subparts you will need to download the original document from the HHS website. There are over 98 references to specific sections of the HIPAA Guidelines document. http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/understanding/coveredentities/research.html http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/hipaa This text explains and answers questions about key elements of the requirements of the HIPAA Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information, also know as the “Privacy Rule” or simply, “The Rule.” HHS published the Privacy Rule on December 3, 2002, revised it on April 3, 2003, and adopted modifications of the Rule on August 14, 2003. The Main Privacy Rule Standards: 1. Incidental Uses and Disclosures 2. Minimum Necessary 3. Personal Representatives 4. Business Associates 5. Uses and Disclosures for Treatment, Payment, and Healthcare operations 6. Uses and Disclosures for Marketing 7. Public Health Issues 8. Research 9. Workers’ Compensation Laws 10. Notice of Privacy 11. Restrictions on Government Access to Information To improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the health care system, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Public Law 104-191, included Administrative Simplification provisions that required HHS to adopt national standards for electronic health care transactions and code sets, unique health identifiers, and security. Congress recognized advances in electronic technology could erode the privacy of health information. Consequently, Congress incorporated into HIPAA provisions that mandated the adoption of Federal protections for individually identifiable health information. HHS published a final Privacy Rule in December 2000, which was later modified in August 2002. This Rule set national standards for the protection of individually identifiable health information by three types of covered entities: health plans, health care clearinghouses, and heath care providers who conduct the standard health care transactions electronically. Compliance with the Privacy Rule was required as of April 14, 2003 (April 14, 2004 for small health plans). HHS published a final Security Rule in February 2003. This Rule set national standards for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information. Compliance with the Security Rule was required as of April 20, 2005 (April 20, 2006 for small health plans). The Enforcement Rule provides standards for the enforcement of all of the Administration Simplification Rules located at 45 CFR Parts 160, 162, and 164. The Privacy Rule protects all “individually identifiable health information” held or transmitted by a covered entity or its business associate, in any form, whether electronic, paper, or oral. The Privacy rule calls this information “protected health information (PHI).” The Privacy Rule establishes, for the first time, a foundation of Federal protections for the privacy of protected health information. The Rule does not replace Federal, State, or other laws that grant individuals even greater privacy protections, and covered entities are free to retain or adopt more protective policies or practices.

Information you could consider adding about HITECH to the HIPAA module

note

HIPAA and HITECH Connections On February 17, 2009 the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was signed into law to promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. Subtitle D of the HITECH Act addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with the electronic transmission of health information, and in part, through several provisions to strengthen the civil and criminal enforcement of the HIPAA rules. These changes were codified in 45 CFR Part 160, 45 CFR Part 162, and 45 CFR Part 164 and the majority of the definitions are contained in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) sections. Section 13410 (d) of the HITECH Act, revised section 1176 (a) of the Social Security Act (the Act) by establishing: • Four categories of violations that reflect increasing levels of culpability; • Four corresponding tiers of penalty amounts that significantly increase the minimum penalty amount for each violation; and • A maximum penalty amount of $1.5 million for all violations of an identical provision. It also amended section 1176 (b) of the Act by: • Striking the previous bar on the imposition of penalties if the covered entity did not know and with the exercise of reasonable diligence would not have known of the violations (such violations are now punishable under the lowest tier of penalties); and • Providing a prohibition on the imposition of penalties for any violation that is corrected within a 30-day time period, as long as the violation was not due to willful neglect. This interim final rule conformed HIPAA’s enforcement regulations to these statutory revisions that are currently effective under section 13410 (d) of the HITECH Act. This interim final rule does not make amendments with respect to those enforcement provisions of the HITECH Act that are not yet under the applicable statutory provisions. The interim final rule became effective on November 30, 2009. HIPAA included Administrative Simplification provisions that required HHS to adopt national standards for electronic health care transactions code sets, unique health identifiers, and security. HHS published a final Security Rule in February 2003. This Rule set national standards for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic PHI. Compliance with the Security Rule was required as of April 20, 2005 (April 20, 2006 for small health plans) OCR administers and enforces the Privacy Rule and the Security Rule. Other HIPAA Administrative Simplification Rules are administered and enforced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and include: • Transaction and Code Set Standards • Employer Identifier Standard • National Provider Identifier Standard All of the HIPAA Administrative Simplification Rules are located at 45 CFR Parts 160, 162, and 164. The proposed modifications to the HIPAA rules includes provision extending the applicability of certain of the Privacy and Security Rules’ requirements to the business associates of covered entities, establishing new limitations on the use and disclosure of protected health information (PHI), and expanding individuals’ rights to access their information and to obtain restriction on certain disclosures of PHI to health plans. In addition, the proposed rule adopts provisions designed to strengthen and expand HIPAA’s enforcement provisions. HITECH contained provisions for “breach notification” regulations developed by OCR, that require health care providers and other HIPAA covered entities to promptly notify affected individuals of a breach, as well as the HHS Secretary and the media in cases where a breach affects more than 500 individuals. Breaches affecting fewer than 500 individuals will be reported to the HHS Secretary on an annual basis. The regulation also requires business associates of covered entities to notify the covered entity of breaches at or by the business associate. To determine when information is “unsecured” notification is required by the HHS and FTC rules, HHS is also issuing in the same document, the regulations to update the guidance specifying encryption and destruction as the technologies and methodologies that render health information unusable, unreadable, or indecipherable to unauthorized individuals. This guidance will be updated annually. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 provided methods for Medicare eligible professionals (EP) who are meaningful users of certified electronic health records to obtain incentive payments. The EP’s can begin receiving incentive payments in any calendar year from 2011 to 2014. The EP’s may receive Medicare incentive payments for up to five years, depending on the year in which the EP first became a meaningful user of certified EHR technology. An EP who successfully demonstrates meaningful use during the relevant EHR reporting period may be eligible for an incentive payment amount, subject to an annual limit, equal to 75 percent of the EP’s Medicare allowed charges submitted no later than two months after the end of the calendar year. The maximum incentives an EP can receive are as follows: implementation in 2011 a total of $44,000; implementation in 2012 a total of $44,000; implementation in 2013 a total of $39,000; implementation in 2014 a total of $24,000. But, if the EP does not successfully demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology, the EP’s Medicare physician fee schedule amount for covered professional services will be adjusted by the applicable payment adjustment specified in the Recovery Act beginning in 2015. The payment adjustments will be as follows: • 2015-99 percent of Medicare physician fee schedule covered amount • 2016-98 percent of Medicare physician fee schedule covered amount • 2017 and each subsequent year-97 percent of Medicare physician fee schedule covered amount If it is determined that for 2018 and subsequent years that less than 75 percent of EP’s are meaningful users then the payment adjustment will change by one percentage each year until the payment adjustments reaches 95 percent. On September 24, 2012 CMS released the Stage 2 criteria that EP’s, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAH) must meet in order to continue to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) incentive programs. The earliest the Stage 2 criteria will be effective is in fiscal year 2014 for eligible hospitals and CAHs or calendar year 2014 for EPs. Eligible Professionals Report on all 17 Core Objectives: 1. Use computerized provider order entry (CPOE) for medication, laboratory, and radiology orders 2. Generate and transmit permissible prescriptions electronically (eRx) 3. Record demographic information 4. Record and chart changes in vital signs 5. Record smoking status for patients 13 years old or older 6. Use clinical decision support to improve performance on high-priority health conditions 7. Provide patients the ability to view online, download, and transmit their health information 8. Provide clinical summaries for patients at each office visit 9. Protect electronic health information created or maintained by the Certified EHR Technology 10. Incorporate clinical lab-test results into Certified EHR Technology 11. Generate lists of patients by specific conditions to use for quality improvements, reductions of disparities, research, and outreach 12. Use clinically relevant information to identify patients who should receive reminders for preventive/follow-up care 13. Use certified EHR technology to identify patient-specific education resources 14. Perform medication reconciliation 15. Provide summary of care records for each transition of care or referral 16. Submit electronic data to immunization registries 17. Use electronic messaging to communicate with patients on relevant health information Report on 3 of 6 Menu Objectives 1. Submit electronic syndromic surveillance data to public health agencies 2. Record electronic notes in patient records 3. Imaging results accessible through CEHRT 4. Report patient family health history 5. Identify and report cancer cases to a State cancer registry 6. Identify and report specific cases to a specialized registry (other than a cancer registry) Although clinical quality measures (CQM) reporting has been removed as a core objective for both EPs, eligible hospitals, and CAHs, all providers are required to report on CQMs in order to demonstrate meaningful use. Beginning in 2014, all providers regardless of their stage of meaningful use will report on CQMs in the same way. • EPs must report on 9 out of 64 total CQMs • Eligible hospitals and CAHs must report on 16 out of 29 total CQMs In addition, all providers must select CQMs from at least 3 of the 6 key health care policy domains recommended by the Department of Health and Human Services’ National Quality Strategy: 1. Patient and Family Engagement 2. Patient Safety 3. Care Coordination 4. Population and Public Health 5. Efficient Use of Healthcare Resources 6. Clinical Processes/Effectiveness

note

cpc-exam-1-Q AND A - JEFF VERSION.doc Questions 50-99 58. Answer b. is technically correct, but it is possible to remove ventilating tubes without anesthesia, so the question could better reflect the correct answer 60. Although we can assume that the correct answer is 67810-E, one would have to assume the upper left eyelid is involved since the question does not specify which eyelid (left or right, upper or lower) 71. c. is given as the correct answer in the answer key (30, 45 and 60 minutes, respectively) and the correct answer is b. (30, 50, and 70 minutes, respectively) 75. The wrong answer is given, c. (regional), but the correct answer should be d. (conscious) 85. Answer is the correct code, grammar should be corrected, instead of “Code and…”, it should be written “Code an….” 86. The question is confusing, because all uterine ultrasound may not be obstetric. I believe the correct answer is a., (76856, Ultrasound, pelvic (nonobstetric), real time with image documentation; complete), instead of c., whis is a code for ultrasound for pregnancy. 89. The answer a., is correct, but the code d. 74070, does not exist.

cpc-exam 2-Q AND A – JEFF VERSION.doc Questions 100-151 Question 101-answer d. is given, which is the correct code for the DTP vaccine, but the correct answer should be c., which includes the code for the administration of the vaccine Question 103. Correct answer is given as c., but the last code in the answer 92105, does not exist. The correct code is 92015. Question 107-, the answer give is b., and that is exactly correct, except that the ICD-9 code in the answer is 585, and 585 should not be reported without a 4th digit, in this case 585.6, indicating end-stage renal disease Question 111. Of these three types of atelectasis, chronic is the most common, but I believe that the most common form of atelectasis is post-surgical. So the question may need to be reworded. 129. This is correct as long as the respiratory and hepatic failure are acute or subacute, but can we assume they are not chronic? Question 136- Correct answer is c. (G0130-single energy x-ray absorptiometry (SEXA) bone density study, one or more sites;…) but the other 3 answers are not proper CPT codes Question 139-answer is given as b., which is correct. But c. is also a correct answer, so the question could be considered improper or misleading. Question 140. Answer a. is correct, but I am uncomfortable when talking about getting paid for codes in the answer. When coding, isn’t it more proper to talk about correct coding, rather than getting paid for coding. Question 142. d. is the answer given (all of the above), but answer a is that CPT describes non-physician services, but isn’t that the primary purpose of CPT, to describe physician professional services Question 149. The correct answer should be written: a. can always be used ‘as’ (instead of ‘at’) primary diagnosis Question 150-actually a. & d. are both correct, may want to change the wording in d. to “can bill the payment for more than the Medicare approved amount”. It is up to the provider to either (waive the co-pay amount, bill the Medicare recipient for the co-pay, or refuse to provide service until the co-pay is paid)

I just want to make a comment how it downloaded into my computer as 2 pages side by side which I thought was strange. All the answers were not going down like (a) one column then return so(b)would be under (a) and (c) under (b) and (d) under (c). I then changed the way to view it and it looked a lot better as far as one page by itself and then second page you would scroll down. I don't know if you think that you might consider having: example - The question number 106 and then do an indent for the whole question and have the a,b,c,d answers under the question so it would stick out more to the person taking the exam and they can review it faster and clearer. To give an example of what I mean real quick: 106. What services can you report to? a. example b. example c. example d. example Questions that I found wrong was at end of Section #2, Question 106 needs to have a return to separate it from Question 107. Also Question 106 needs to have a,b,c,d in separate rows. Letter (d) word spelled wrong Opthalmoligical, it should be Ophthalmological. It was spelled correctly in answer (c). Section 3: Question 108 answers (a) & (d) fascitis is spelled wrong. It should be spelled fasciitis. Question #109. The first word spelled wrong. It was spelled Blephroplasty and it should be spelled Blepharoplasty. Question #121. Dorsiflection is spelled wrong. It should be Dorsiflexion. Question #136. Look at the answer (d) the code 780.51 is insomnia with sleep apnea but there is 136 attached to the number 780.51136, delete 136. That is all that I found wrong except you need to put the answers like I mentioned because they are in the questions and some are in the same sentence etc. Please review and you will see what I mean. Thank you and I apologize that it was completed too close to Christmas. I would have done more but I have family here and it is a holiday. Thank you again and if you need more help, I will do it after the holidays if you need it. Merry Christmas, Debbie Novak

cpc-exam-2-questions-and-answers-current-year for extern review.doc Question 58. The answer explains that you can look up the definition in the index under the subheading. A more accurate answer would be to look up the code and then look under the heading of Neuroplasty for the description of the procedure. Question 61. Although the answer is correct, it is more clearly defined in CPT Professional as “A new patient is one who has not received any professional services from the physician or another physician of the exact same specialty and subspecialty who belongs to the same group practice, within the past three years. Question 88. This question should be removed or revised. The 2012 Professional Edition, under the Special Report Subheading says “Pertinent information should include an adequate definition or description of the nature, extent and need for the procedure; and the time, effort and equipment neccesary to provide the service”. It is difficult to extrapolate the CPT Manual and choose one of the answers given, even with the material at hand. Question 94. I cannot agree with the answer (c.), because the constituent components checked in this test from the specimen do not mention infectious agents. I think the likely correct answer would be (d.), that also checks for response to infectious agents.

cpc-exam-2-questions-and-answers-current-year for extern review.doc Questions 1-10 Question 2. There is no reason the answer (a.) should, for the second code (12053) have a 51 modifier. There is only one layered closure reported. Question 9. The answer key shows an extra answer (with no number preceding it) apparently refering to the scenario in question 9. I believe the correct answer is (b.) The biopsy should be coded with modifier 59, showing that it is a distinct procedural service.

"7. Correct code is 19140, mastectomy for gynocomastia; 19162, partial mastectomy with axillary lymphadectomy." There is no 19140 or 19162 codes. 19300 is for mastectomy for gynecomastia which is enlarged breasts for male, do not see gynocomastia, so probably 19303 is correct for mastectomy, as it reads simple, complete and 19302 is correct for partial mastectomy with axillary lymphadectomy.

Question reads, "What HCPCS Level II code is used for mesh used during a hernia repair via laparatomy? CPT code 43333 includes, "with implantation of mesh or other prosthesis." Answer "A" states, The mesh is never coded separately but included in the CPT procedure code. However, I do not see any guidelines stating this in the CPT manual, so I think the answer C, HCPCS code C9363 is correct, and that can be coded to cover the costs of the mesh used.

I disagree with correct answer, "Code 99499, Unlisted E & M procedure." I think the correct answer should be, "Use appropriate subsequent day observation codes." There are subsequent observation codes as well as subsequent hospital-inpatient codes. If the patient is automatically admitted as inpatient after the first 24 hours in observation, then this answer should have been correct, "Use inpatient codes."

Question #10. Transurethral Microwave Thermotherapy (TUMT) is a therapy for symptomatic benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). It is a method of delivering microwave heating sufficient to destroy prostatic adenoma tissue without significant damage to surrounding tissue. What is the best code for this procedure?
Date:
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Time:
11:56:27 AM

note

I think the correct answer should be Code 53850, because it states, "Transurethral destruction of prostate tissue; by microwave thermotherapy." Correct answer at present is Code 53852, which states, "by radiofrequency thermotherapy." Nowhere in the question description does it mention radiofrequency thermotherapy, so unless I am missing something, or there is not enough information provided, this cannot be correct code.

I think a better worded answer would be "Farsightedness due to old age." I have this condition myself, and my eye doctor nicknames me "Hawkeye", and he said I still have 20-15 vision, which is even better than 20/20, so "Worsening of eyesight due to age." is not really a correct answer.

note

I disagree that code 92980 is correct, because that code is for "Intravascular Ultrasound(Coronary Vessel or Graft)" and correct answer should be code 92982,92980-51, because 92982 is for "Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty(PTCA) and guidelines read, "(For stent placement following completion of angioplasty or artherectomy, see 92980, 92981)" Modifier 51 is used for multiple procedures.

Answer A is correct, and CPT section under Repair(Closure) cites this as example, "Use the codes in this section to designate wound closure utilizing sutures, staples, or tissue adhesives(eg, 2-cyanoacrylate), either singly or in combination with each other, or in combination with adhesive strips. Wound closure utilizing adhesive strips as the sole repair material should be coded using the appropriate E/M code."

On question 2 the answer is 2 but codes 19180, 19200 and 19240 have been deleted correct. 2. On question 6 the answer is supposed to be 3 but in the 2012 CPT book they added code 33227 so would that now be the correct answer. Thank You, Terri Shaner terrishaner@msn.com

The fluoroscopy is part of it and not a separate code of 76005 like the answer has. If I am reading this wrong please clarify. I am using a 2011 CPT book.

Question 6: New code added in 2012 is 33227 (Rmoval of permanent pacemaker plus generator with replacement of pacemaker pulse generator; single lead system. I think this should be the correct answer. This would be in place of what the eplanation says is the correct answer of using codes 33233 (Removal of permanent pulse generator only) and code 33212-51 (Insrtion of pulse generator only, with existing single lead.)

Question 2: Answer two is not completly typed out. It should be ..... they are new or established patients. Question 13: I think 1 is the incorrect answer and the answer should be 2. If time is not a major component of E&M as you state in the explanation section and Page 10 of the 2012 CPT Manual (under "Select the Appropriate Level of E/M Services" Section number 1.) lists the key components as History, Examination and Medical Decision Making, then that would make the correct answer Number 2.

Terri Shaner (terrishaner@msn.com) Title: The word year should be capitalized (Year) Questions 2,4,19,28,32,38,58,59,61,64,71,and 72: Change punctuation at end of sentence to a question (?) mark. Question 10: The question is "in the CPT manual the Triangle, Circle and Plus sign respectively mean:".... The problem I see is a solid circle means "New Code" but a blank circle means "Recycled/Reinstated Code" would it be better to word the question "the Triangle, Solid Circle and Plus Sign.." Question 70: Please review this question it did not make sense to me. You have answer three as the correct answer and I would agree with that if the answer read Category II codes. Question 77: Review answers. Answers 2 - 4 are the same. Question 82: None of the answers are correct in 2012 Codes 0141T to 0144T were deleted. Code 0141T was replaced with G0341. Though some carriers will accept CPT Codes 48160 or 48999. Question 83: None of the answers are correct all the codes listed have been deleted. Answer 4 Code 0155T was deleted in 2012. The CPT book states that you should use CPT Code 46359 which is an unlisted procedure code. Question 84: None of the answers are correct all the codes have been deleted. Answer 2 Code 0168T was deleted in 2012. It has been recommended to use CPT Code 30999 which is an unlistd procedure code. Question 88: This is an outdated question. Question 99: I do not feel that this question is clear, while a metal implant is not a foreign body a piece of metal imbedded in the thumb would be. This would also be the same with a piece of glass in the foot.

Question 28: You state that the correct answer is a new patient, however, it is not stated that she is a new patient therefore the answer fould also be "You cannot tell from the information given." Question 39: Change punctuation to question mark at the end of the sentence. Question 47: Both answers 2 and 4 are "Residents of Nursing Facilities." Question 61: Is this truly relevant to coders in 2013? Question 62: Need a question mark after the wod level.

Thank you for updating your notes. On the first comment, however, I do not understand what you want me to do. You state Mod-51 but why? Is the question or answer incorrect? I need to know what you recommend. Are there multiple CPT codes and I need to add MOD-51. State: Add MOD-51 to answers--something like that. Did you just want me to add that to the explanation? Again, Now, I'm doing all this extra work to try to translate what you sent me. So please be clear. Assume nothing. Ever.

Jeff, I have been reviewing the exam (the ones that you sell all the time) and so far, I find no errors. I will continue and let you know. However, I have a recommendation for the answer/explanation paper, for question #26. I believe it should read: "Key words are revascularization and femoral/popliteal for the index. From the CPT guidelines for this section, which are highly recommended reading, Use a single intervention code, 37230, for the femoral/popliteal territory and do not use Add-On codes." Also, for the same question (#26), delete the ZBAN from the end of the question following the question mark, it is confusing. Rob Forker

***ERROR THAT NEEDS CORRECTING*** Jeff, Question #58 has "and a comprehensive exam for a new patient" as part of the question, but your answer gives 92014, which is for an "established" patient. In the question, 92014 must be changed to 92004 to be correct. Rob Forker

Jeff, For question 86, you have answer 1 as "75750". There is no longer any such code. It is not the correct answer but if you substitute "75731" it will make the exam a little more challenging and current. Rob Forker 863-399-1966

*****ERROR _ NEEDS IMMEDIATE ACTION**** Jeff, You said that you frequently sell this prep test so this needs to be fixed ASAP. Question 92 reads "Molecular diagnostic codes 83890 to 83912 are differentiated by:" BUT THOSE CODES HAVE BEEN DELETED. The replacement codes are in the range 81200 to 81479, but I am not sure you can just substitute the numbers. Rob Forker

Jeff, The only difference between 574.30 and 574.40 is acute vs chronic. Both are Cholecystitus with bile duct calculus. Since your question doesn't specify one or the other, I believe the question should specify or the answer is open to interpretation and ambiguous. Rob Forker

The answer 512.82 has the instruction to code first the underlying condition, which would be 496 in this case. Thus I believe the correct answer is 496 , 512.82 , 492.8 , 488.19. Sorry to pepper you with these, but I would rather error on the side of disclosure to you than assume something incorrect. Rob Forker

Question 43 Answer #2 and #3 are correct. As of January 1, 2010 Medicare stopped recognizing CPT Codes for Consultations (99241-99245 and 99251-99255) but can be used for payors that accept the codes. These codes were revised to require providers to bill these services as new (99201-99205) or established (99211-99215) office/outpatient visits. I suggest the answers to this question be revised.

The Answer to Question 61 should be Answer 1 as the codes were revised to identify who was responsible for the counseling and/or coordination of care with other physicians and other qualified health care professionals and to better define amount of time spent with patient and/or family or caregiver.
