Is Your Clinic Ready For The E/M Code Changes Coming January 1st 2021?

Starting 2021, per AMA guidelines, physicians will no longer have to tirelessly count bullet points to assign an evaluation and management level for outpatient office visits. Physicians will now be able to select an E/M code based on total time spent on the encounter date or medical decision making, whichever is most financially advantageous. This streamlined process aims to reduce physician burnout and allow for more time spent on direct patient care.
