The American Medical Association (AMA) and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have partnered together to release significant guideline revisions for office and outpatient E/M services effective January 1, 2021. Let RTW’s coding and compliance experts walk you through what you need to know about these important changes, including how to correctly document time-based services versus level of medical decision making and appropriate application of prolonged service codes. 

This training will compare current and future E/M service guidelines, help you understand how these changes will affect day to day operations, and provide key strategies to prepare.  In addition, the training will include interactive exercises, practice scenarios will be evaluated and discussed, and live Q&A will be included.  Coding tools will also be provided for reference.

At the end of these sessions, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize 2021 documentation requirements for EM Services
  • Understand appropriate application of time-based reporting versus level of medical decision making
  • Determine the level of service based on documented details
  • How to appropriately document/capture prolonged services
