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.
Evaluation and Management (E/M) documentation guidelines for office and outpatient visits changed on January 1, 2021. The AMA and CMS worked together to create these new guidelines to help reduce the burden of documentation on providers.
