    February 4 - 10 AM CST | We’re one year into using revised E/M criteria in the office setting. Join us for an overview of how code levels are selected under these AMA-defined changes.

    2022 E/M in the Office + Office Modifiers
    Friday, February 4th | 10 AM Central (11 AM Eastern/ 9 AM Mountain/ 8 AM Pacific)

    We’re one year into using revised E/M criteria in the office setting.  Join us for an overview of how code levels are selected under these AMA-defined changes.  We’ll cover in-depth how the AMA’s March 2021 Technical Corrections impact medical decision-making credit in orthopaedics.  Last, we’ll discuss appropriate use of E/M modifiers 24, 57, and 25 in the office setting.  

    This 2.5 hour virtual course analyzes the CPT E/M guidelines that apply to office new and established patient visits, presenting them in a distilled, understandable way. We’ll break down and explain the restructured elements of Medical Decision Making and Time and demonstrate how they are applied using example scenarios.

    In this session you will:

    • Drill into the parameters of Medical Decision Making, and how the definitions of Problems Addressed, Data, and Risk come together to determine a level of service.
    • Understand the nuances of how data credit is allowed (or not allowed), based upon information published by the AMA during 2021.
    • Differentiate how Time is defined under the revised criteria, and what activities can be counted when selecting the level of service for codes 99202-99215.
    • Take a detailed look at the definition of modifier 25 and how to defend against payor denials.
