Hello! Has anyone heard from their Medicaid carrier if they are going to follow the 2021 E/M guidelines? I have checked on the CMS.gov website and on my local Medicaid DHS website and see nothing about this in their bulletins or FAQs. Thank you!
2021 E&M are not carrier-specific or insurance-specific. Unless the insurance has an alternate code that is used (as in some of the codes that start with a letter instead of a number), then they don't have a choice but to use the new codes.
