During this 1-hour webinar, participants learned about the coding guidelines for problem-oriented evaluation and management (E/M) visits that went into effect on January 1, 2021. Dr. Michael Policar and Ann Finn, billing and coding consultant, reviewed the 2021 changes to E/M coding, discuss coding for telemedicine visits, and share case studies in family planning that demonstrate correct E/M and ICD-10 diagnosis coding. This webinar was intended for Title X clinicians and billing staff who have experience with coding but desire a deeper understanding of the 2021 modifications that focus on utilizing either total time or medical decision making in choosing the E/M level for each visit.
Participants were encouraged to submit questions in advance during registration.
