GeBBS Healthcare Solutions, a leading technology-enabled provider of revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions, announced recently the availability of a new professional fee E/M leveling calculator tool. The new resource is offered to the HIM community in appreciation for their service to the healthcare industry. E/M coding is complex which supports the need for a tool of this nature to ensure healthcare providers and physicians are reimbursed appropriately and reduce the risk of compliance audits.
The tool is secure, HIPAA-compliant and follows the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) accepted coding standards; it is easily accessible at www.gebbs.com/emcalculator.
Registered users, after logging in, will have full access to the tool’s capabilities, including:
- Ability to print findings to PDF format
- Access to educational information and webinars
- Informational newsletters
“E/M leveling is important; too many physicians are inappropriately assigning E/M codes, mainly because they do not understand the complex rules. An improved working knowledge of E/M coding and comprehensive reference tool is the best way to ensure optimal coding compliance,” explained Cara Friederich, GeBBS’ Director of Coding & Consulting Services.
“Many of our clients have asked for this tool, and we are happy to bring this to the entire industry. We are making it available to the entire HIM community as a ‘thank you’ for the valuable services they provide to the healthcare industry,” commented Ryan Kelly, GeBBS’ Senior Vice President of HIM Solutions.

GeBBS employs over 1,000 certified coders – the industry’s largest and most experienced coding team – who will be utilizing this E/M coding tool to ensure consistent coding quality.
