The AMA and CMS have created new guidelines in an effort to reduce the documentation burden on providers. There are still key elements that must be documented to avoid audit and non-payment. The history and examination criteria will be eliminated from the level of service equation and all focus will be on the careful documentation of medical decision making. In this session we will compare current and future documentation needs to help you determine the best implementation strategies before the new year begins. We will discuss the 2021 E/M Changes for Office and Other Outpatient Services.
