Coding for initial hospital services: examples for hospitalists
Recorded November 17, 2022
Be ready for the changes to the 2023 E/M code set for hospital services, including inpatient, observation, and emergency department encounters. The American Medical Association is extending the 2021 framework for office visits to the remainder of E/M services selected by key components or time. In the process, they have consolidated hospital and observation coding, and changed the guidelines related to reporting these services. The medical decision-making grid has additions that will directly impact selecting a level of service for hospital visits. Join us for this webinar. While the content is relevant for all specialties, the examples in this webinar will be hospitalist initial care services.
After the presentation participants will be able to:
- Describe the initial and subsequent facility visits, per the AMA
- Select the correct type of visit for inpatient and observation services
- Apply the revised MDM grid to hospital services
