On-demand webinar 

R1’s experts will update you on important code updates and other changes you need to understand

The American Medical Association (AMA) recently released changes to the CPT Evaluation and Management (E/M) guidelines which take effect on January 1, 2023. These changes build on the revisions to office/outpatient E/M codes from 2021 heightening medical decision-making and seeking to reduce the documentation burden on practitioners.

The CPT E/M changes for 2023 will affect hospital inpatients, observation care visits, consultations, emergency room visits, and nursing facility services along with home, rest home, and domiciliary E/M codes.

In this new webinar, R1’s panel of experts will cover:

  • Level of E/M services based on the level of the MDM as defined for each service OR total time for the E/M service performed on the date of the encounter
  • How practitioners should handle both face-to-face and non-face-to-face time
  • Revision/combining of hospital inpatient and observation care services E/M codes 99221-99223, 99231-99239 and guidelines (one code combines both services)
  • Which hospital observation services E/M codes were deleted
  • Which inpatient hospital services E/M codes were revised to include observation care services
  • Changes to existing prolonged services codes
  • Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed prolonged services codes
  • And much more!
