Details

On January 1, 2021, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will be implementing significant changes to the outpatient evaluation and management (E/M) codes (CPT® codes 99202-99215) for new and established patients. The agency revised both the documentation requirements and values. Practices, physicians, and staff must understand these modifications to ensure a successful transition next year.

To help prepare, AASLD is holding a webinar to explain these changes, including how to correctly bill and document the revised code set, on December 15 at 3:00 pm ET. Join to learn more about what these changes mean for you and your practice to be prepared on January 1.
