ISMS members: Free
Non-ISMS members: $75.00
Recently, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has moved its “Patients Over Paperwork” initiative forward. Part of that process involved a revision in the documentation requirement to support the use of CPT Evaluation and Management (E/M) Codes. This webinar, presented by Nathan Kennedy from National Government Services, will provide an important update on required documentation and guidance on the use of the revised code set.
At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:
- List changes to E/M for 2021.
- Describe how to select an E/M code.
- Discuss how to determine what qualifies as “Prolonged Care.”
- Describe how to bill for Prolonged Care.
