Substantive revisions have been made to the CPT codes related to office and other outpatient services, collectively known as the Evaluation and Management (E/M) codes. These changes, designed to address administrative burden in clinical practice, were announced in November 2019 and impact nearly every medical specialty. Understanding these changes and their benefits and impacts is essential for all members of the care team.
This second module, in a series of three, will provide detailed information on how the new revisions to the CPT E/M office visits will affect time. Important revisions were made to this key element and having an understanding of how you will report it, under this new coding construct, will be critical to managing both your practice and patients.
