Whether the patient is being seen in their home, hospital, nursing home, or assisted living center there are visit codes to represent the time and work spent in seeing patients in these settings.
While most of these codes require that history, examination, and medical decision making be documented to determine the level of service, some of the codes have other requirements like time for example.
In this webinar we will review all of the different options in the evaluation and management codes that are available to represent visits performed by providers in all of the different locations and settings.
We will also look at codes that can be added to primary evaluation and management codes that allow the reporting and reimbursement for additional time spent. Also, there is projected changes to some of these coding categories for 2023 which we share in order for attendees to begin to prepare for future implementation.
Why you should Attend: Even though there were 2021 changes to office visit documentation guidelines other E/M service documentation requirements have not changed.
It is important that those determining the level of service for these other visits understand the requirements and apply them. We will take a close look at these other E/M codes and give attendees insight on when to use them and confirm that they are being used for maximum reimbursement by representing all of the work the provider performed to complete the visit.
