MAHEC Webinar: 2021 Final Rule Review, Add-on Codes, Coding Risks and Audits
Wednesday, December 09, 2020, 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM EST
Category: Events

 

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced in the 2019 Final Rule that changes to E&M services would be initiated as an attempt to alleviate the administrative burden the current guidelines presented to providers. The Final Rule established new Evaluation and Management coding guidelines, effective January 1, 2021, that replace the previous 1995 and 1997 guidelines.

The CPT coding changes retain 5 levels of coding for established patients, reduce the number of levels to 4 for office/outpatient E/M visits for new patients, and revise the code definitions. The CPT code changes also revise the times and medical decision making process for all of the codes, and requires performance of history and exam only as medically appropriate. The CPT code changes will allow clinicians to choose the E/M visit level based on either medical decision making or time.

In addition to the E&M code changes, opportunities for additional services are available to clinicians. CMS recognizes the time and effort clinicians provide to patients with complex conditions by allowing coding and documentation for prolonged services and a patient complexity add-on code.

This event will provide an in-depth review of what is changing and why. Participants will learn about the specific options and requirements from coding experts and a clinician. The presenters will provide an explanation of the new methods using pertinent case examples.
