Fundamental Changes to Evaluation and Management (E/M) Visit CPT Coding Starting January 1, 2021 – Are You Ready?
Changes to Evaluation and Management (E/M) CPT Codes are coming in January 1, 2021. Are you ready? Will you know and understand the new guidelines for selection of E/M code levels?
It is critical for urogynecologists to understand how effective medical decision making (MDM) will now be a main factor when selecting which level of Evaluation and Management (E/M) codes to bill for visits performed in their practice. Major revisions of the E/M office visit CPT codes take effect on January 1, 2021, which is intended to address some of the issues related to administrative burden for physicians in the United States.
The AUGS Coding and Reimbursement Committee hosted a two-part webinar series to educate members on these important documentation and billings changes. Webinars were held live on October 22, 2020 and December 3, 2020. The webinars were recorded and can be purchased for on-demand viewing.
