E&M: Key up the Focus to Complexity and Risk
Recorded February 15, 2024
Prior to the new E&M guidelines, AMA CPT did not reference medical necessity. The Claims Process Manual was our main point of reference for the statement Medical necessity is the overarching determining factor. While 2021 Documentation Guidelines uses 2 key components of time and MDM, the guidelines came armed with references of medical necessity littered throughout inferring that maybe it’s NOT always just 2 of the 3 key components. Let’s consider medical necessity.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Define the financial loss of E/M Services
- Understand Medical necessity as the overarching determining factor
- Advise your physicians on complexity and risk
