ZHealth Consulting specializes in Electrophysiology (EP) coding and reimbursement, which encompasses extremely complex procedures performed in the EP lab (e.g., intricate arrhythmias are studied and/or induced, mapped, and ablated; pacemakers and defibrillators are implanted and replaced). It is therefore difficult for those providing EP services to remain current with the coding changes for this complicated specialty area. In addition, it has been one of the most costly areas for providers due to Medicare/DOJ Medical Necessity audits.
ZHealth’s expert physician coders are proficient in EP procedure terminology, procedural techniques, and anatomical considerations, and they are well-versed in the specific components of each procedure. Our EP services include:
In addition, our ZHealth physician coders provide physician peer-to-peer education related to documentation and medical necessity issues.
Our physicians have coded thousands of these cases, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to the coding process. ZHealth enables the Provider to bill appropriately based on Medicare and medical society guidelines. Contact us today to learn more about our EP services.
