Evaluation and Management Updates for 2021

December 1, 2020
Presentation: 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Presenter: Jill Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC
Registration Fee: $25.00

For the last two years, we have been talking about the proposed changes to Evaluation and Management codes and that these changes would become effective January 1, 2021. Understanding those changes is key in making any necessary changes in the office flow. It is also important to consider any potential software changes that may be necessary to ensure correct coding of Evaluation and Management services.

The E/M office visit modifications include:

  • Eliminating history and physical exam as elements for code selection.
  • Allowing physicians to choose the best patient care by permitting code level selection based on medical decision-making (MDM) or total time.
  • Promoting payer consistency with more detail added to CPT code descriptors and guidelines.

Jill Young will explain these changes and allow time for questions, to help you prepare for 2021.
