About Course

Effective January 1, 2021, E/M codes for office visits changed. E/M levels are now determined by time or medical decision-making. Since these new changes have been implemented in 2021, there have been technical corrections issued by the AMA along with numerous FAQs answered by the AMA. In this webinar, Attorney and Certified Professional Coder, David Vaughn, will guide you through the nuances of selecting the level of E/M visits based on either time or medical decision making along with the appropriate use of modifier 25 which continues to be a challenging issue for most providers. Further, for the duration of the PHE, Medicare and other payers now allow telehealth services to be billed that were not previously allowed prior to the PHE. David Vaughn will cover the types of telehealth visits that can be billed to Medicare along with documentation, modifier, and place of service billing requirements.
