Each year there are changes made by the AMA to the CPT® manual and 2022 is no different. This year’s changes to the Evaluation and Management section of CPT® focuses on not only clarifying some issues with the 2021 E/M guidelines for office and outpatient services but providing revisions and code additions to critical care, care management services, remote monitoring services. This webinar will look at all of the changes made here for 2022 so that attendees will not only learn about the changes but will have the knowledge to apply them in their office environment to effectively implement the changes for maximum reimbursement.

Webinar Objectives

When CPT® codes are not accurately reported the provider runs the risk of an audit by any insurance company or governmental entity that is responsible for coding accuracy and compliance. Coding error can also cause claims denials which either slow or prohibit reimbursement for services rendered. Knowledge of the coding changes allows the office staff to establish workflow and process based on the coding changes and also share documentation requirements for compliance.

Webinar Agenda

This webinar will review each individual change in the E/M section of CPT® whether it is a revision or addition to the codes or guidelines. The information shared will be directly from CPT® and the AMA
