New guidelines for office and outpatient Evaluation and Management (E/M) codes 99202-99215 were effective on January 1, 2021. This is biggest change in E/M coding and documentation since the 1995 and 1997 guidelines were published. Learn everything you need to know about documenting and coding under these new guidelines.

Why Should You Attend:

In this session we will discuss the new guidelines for coding based on time or medical decision making. We will explain new definitions and the new time requirements for each E/M code. We will discuss what needs to be documented to support each level of service and review case examples applying the new guidelines for proper code selection. We will talk about new add-on codes for prolonged care. We will provide a coding “cheat sheet” with the information you need at hand while documenting and coding under the new guidelines.

Providers must use the new guidelines for coding visits in the office or other outpatient setting.
