NOTICE: The changes coming in 2019 - 2021 will apply ONLY to OUTPATIENT encounters.  The rules for documenting inpatient encounters will remain the same.

Learn all about the changes coming to E/M coding and documentation starting in 2019 and beyond.  Utilize newly liberalized and expanded shortcuts to streamline your documentation.  Get ready for the new rules for coding based on time, the option of coding based solely on MDM and the blended payment structure for new and established office patients which has just recently been finalized and confirmed.  There are also new G codes which will allow primary care physicians improved reimbursement and increased payments to non-procedural specialists providing complex care.  Finally, there is a new extended services code for outpatient encounters with a decreased time threshold.
