Preparing for the Proposed E/M Changes in 2021

With CMS proposing a major change to Evaluation & Management coding that allows only Level 2 and Level 5 visits in 2021, how can you prepare your practice for the financial impact? Join our webinar to walk through the impact on several different specialties using historical E&M CPT frequency data. Since this change will affect ‘current year’ Medicare agreements in 2021, can you minimize the impact to other payers by preparing your payer contracts now?

After this webinar, you will and be able to:

  • Understand the rationale behind proposed changes
  • Learn how to take advantage of the simplification and reduction in redundancy of documentation at your practice
  • Identify the impact on “single rate” payment for your practice by looking at examples from various specialties for typical Levels 2 – 4 utilization
  • Raise your awareness of the proposed new “add-on” codes for primary care, non-procedural specialty care and extended time
  • Create a roadmap to prepare for the 2021 changes
