Urgent Care Centers (UCCs) treat patients with injuries or illnesses that are not life threatening on a walk-in, unscheduled patient basis. Medical coding differs between urgent care centers and emergency departments. Our expert urgent care certified coding staff understands the intricacies of choosing the correct evaluation and management code, the requirements for documenting the visit and billing for services performed in the urgent care setting. Critical to the success of the urgent care coding program, Edelberg knows when modifiers should be added to claims and which supplies and services can be billed independently and which can be billed in addition to a level of service and procedures performed during the patient visit. Urgent care centers are treating higher levels of acuity as patients find it more difficult to be seen in private physician offices or refuse to wait long hours to be seen in an emergency department. Using our CLEAR software solution, E+A’s metrics offer a detailed practice analysis to providers in Urgent Care Centers.
