Changes to Outpatient Evaluation and Management (E/M) Guideline


Is your practice ready for coming changes to E/M coding? The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and American Medical Association (AMA) will implement significant changes to outpatient evaluation and management (E/M) services as of Jan. 1, 2021. The revised coding guidelines for E/M services represent the first major overhaul to E/M reporting in over 25 years. Since E/M visits comprise approximately 40% of allowed charges for most physician practices, understanding the upcoming changes to E/M coding is critical. This information is critical for healthcare attorneys, accountants and medical professionals to understand as they navigate healthcare compliance issues, false claims and reimbursements. Join us for this webinar highlighting key changes to the E/M codes and outlining best practices to be ready for the changes.

Speakers: Corinne Smith, Jeannie Cagle, RN (Senior Manager, Coker Group), and Rosalind Cordini, JD, MSN, CHC, CHPC (Senior Vice President/Director of Coding & Compliance Services, Coker Group)

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
