2021 Outpatient E/M Code Updates Webinar

Live Webinar: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 1 pm EST

Outpatient E/M codes have changed for 2021, marking the first significant overhaul of E/M coding in almost 30 years! The purpose of this webinar is to ensure proper understanding of how to select the correct code for your service, know what codes are available, know how to properly document the services, and to get paid correctly for your services.

The new coding was effective on January 1, 2021.  However, there has been such confusion with the codes and new coding guidelines that the AMA put out additional guidelines and clarifications in March.

During this 90-minute webinar, instructor Emmy Clancy, MHA, CMPE, CPC, CDEO, CPMA, CCS will review all available guidelines and provide a comprehensive review with examples on how to use the new coding guidelines.
