AAAAI Coding Webinar Online

Join AAAAI Coding Consultant Teresa Thompson, BS, CPC, CMSCS, CCC for a coding refresher. Review key changes to documentation for office and outpatient E/M services, and telemedicine and non-physician provider billing practices.

Effective January 1, 2021 and as part of its efforts to reduce burden and improve payment for cognitive care, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) implemented key changes to office and outpatient evaluation and management (E/M) services. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and private payers have also updated their regulations during the pandemic so visits are more feasible for both clinicians and patients. Clinics have shifted to using telemedicine, virtual check-ins, remote patient monitoring, and eVisits. Lastly, non-physician provider billing practices are revised.


Credit claiming for this activity will be available through December 31, 2021. Requests to claim credit on or after January 1, 2022 will be subject to an administrative fee.
