Coding office visit codes 99202—99215 in 2021
Recorded June 12th, 2021
- Watch 2021 Office Visit Coding Insights for a review of the AMA’s technical corrections (also known as revisions) to the E/M guidelines released on 3/9/2021.
It’s here, the first major changes for selecting an E/M service since 1997. Clinicians are only required to document “a medically appropriate history and/or physical exam, when performed.” Code selection is based on time or medical decision making. The instructions on using time for codes 99202—99215 are all new. The elements of MDM are re-defined, with new definitions.
These new codes are in your 2021 CPT® book and will apply to all payers.
After the webinar participants will be able to:
- Know how to use time for new and established patients in 2021
- Define the key terms in the revised MDM guidelines
- Identify important documentation changes, based on the guidelines
