With the advent of new CPT guidance for outpatient E/M services, coders, auditors, and physicians will be struggling to not only make sense of the revised guidance but to implement it as well. To ensure compliance, all will have to determine what constitutes a “medically appropriate history and exam” and grapple with the issue of scoring MDM under the new CPT medical decision-making scoring table.

During this presentation, we will outline the current discrepancies between CMS and CPT guidance as well as the areas of unresolved ambiguity that will no doubt frustrate coders, auditors, and physicians alike when attempting to select the appropriate level of outpatient E/M service.
