In the 2019 Final Rule, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) implemented policy changes directly impacting billing and documentation relating to office visits for new and established patients. To avoid payment errors, providers should be aware of these updates, realizing that certain E/M changes are in effect now while others will be implemented in the future. During this webcast we will review:
• Top categories of CERT payment errors relating to office visit code selection
• History component updates
• Office visit documentation requirement changes
• New medical decision-making priority
• E/M changes to be implemented in 2021
Additional updates are planned with the goal of reducing provider burden. Join us to review what changed and begin preparing for the future.
