Substantive revisions are being 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 when these changes are coming, and their benefits and impacts, is essential for all members of the care team.
