This presentation will address the changes to documentation and coding requirements for evaluation and management services finalized in the 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule.
These changes will have varying levels of impact depending on provider specialties and other factors, however clinicians will be able to use current coding guidelines during the transition process.
The impact to revenue caused by these changes will be reviewed in detail and additional codes approved by CMS that may help to offset reductions in revenue for certain specialties will be reviewed in detail.
Why should you Attend: A detailed understanding of evaluation management documentation coding rules is essential to all outpatient office-based practices as these guidelines are used by CMS and other payers. Lack of understanding of these guidelines can lead to significant revenue loss and in some situations accusations of fraud waste and abuse.
