Guide to Coding and Documentation for Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment published by the American Osteopathic Association.

This useful resource is the companion to Dr. Judith Connell's AOMA 37th Annual Fall Seminar lecture on Insurance Billing for OMM. For those clinicians looking for help in understanding coding and documentation rubrics for evaluation and management services, the appropriate use of modifier -25, and the selection of osteopathic manipulative treatment codes the AOA and AOIA have created the AOA Guide to Coding and Documenting Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment and Evaluation and Management Services. This manual expands on the AOA Position Paper on OMT and E/M to include discussions on the E/M Documentation Guidelines and how to choose a level of service and proper documentation for OMT.

Books will be distributed at the Fall Seminar. Pre-order with your Seminar registration to reserve your copy.
