HCAN Finance Peer Network: Essential Updates for 2021
February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In this initial installment of our 2021 HCAN Education Series, we will explore the AMA’s 2021 E/M guideline changes for office/other outpatient visit codes 99202-99215. Attendees will be able to investigate training needs and consider assessments for comprehension of guideline changes. We will address common questions asked since implementation, including how to apply these changes to behavioral health prescriber encounters and wellness visits with illness management. Production changes should be monitored for investigation of financial impact, appropriateness of scheduling, and for comparison purposes. EMR tools to assist with E/M code assignment may be outdated. Attendees will learn what to look for and how to discuss needed changes with IT professionals. Finally, we will address the various vaccine administration codes for COVID-19 and discuss anticipated changes to telehealth for the short and long-term outlook.
