E/M Code and Guidelines Changes Effective 2021

After 23 years, the E/M documentation guidelines and coding for office/outpatient visits will change. Beginning January 1, healthcare providers working with in-office and other outpatient services must choose to code by time or medical decision-making.

  • What happens to history and exam?
  • What is the prolonged service code?
  • How do the changes affect documentation for non-face-to-face services?

Don't let improperly coded claims break your revenue cycle! This course will save you time by helping you identify software, processes, templates, or documents that may need to be updated and/or replaced. Go through real-world examples, applying new 2021 guidelines for proper E/M code selection.

This in-depth training is full of new information to help providers and coders understand how the new 2021 E/M selection will work. Your instructor will answer these questions and explain the potential impact on your specialty and practice. Participants will receive a digital course manual with coding exercises to help you and your clinicians prepare now for January 1 implementation.
