Medical Record Documentation: CMS reducing the burden
April 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm (EST)
CMS wants to ease the burden of physician documentation of E/M services and teaching physician rules and has used its 2018, 2019 and 2020 Physician Fee Schedule Final Rules to do so. These changes are not reflected in the current CPT book or in the 1995 and 1997 Documentation Guidelines. There is silence from private payers and Medicare Advantage plans about these changes.
This webinar will review CMS’s changed policy for teaching physician rules and E/M services. Each medical group will need to decide for itself whether to implement these changes, with the understanding that they apply to fee-for-service Medicare only.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the updated teaching physician rules
- Use the updated CMS policies if responding to a MAC audit
- Provide information about CMS policy to their practice
