The Impact of E/M Documentation Changes on CDI Webinar

Learn more about this event

While CMS has hit the brakes on making imminent changes to the E/M code set that is tied to billions of dollars in medical practice revenue, that doesn't mean changes aren't coming January 1 or beyond. CMS plans to weave a number of smaller updates into to the E/M payment and documentation picture and will implement a broader array of changes in 2021. Practices will be able to opt for medical decision-making time as a key documentation requirement when reporting E/M office codes. CMS plans to adopt a minimum documentation standard for the levels 2 through 4 visit. CMS is also making sweeping changes to the 2020 IPPS rule, redefining complications or comorbidities as condition which, because of their presence with a specific principal diagnosis would cause an increase in length of stay by at least one day in at least 75 percent of patient.

In this webinar, attendees will:
-Review potential changes to the E/M code set and how documentation practices will be impacted

-Review changes in the 2020 IPPS proposed rule which will impact documentation practices

-See where these changes will affect revenue in both the physician office and the facility

-Take a close look at the comorbidities and complications that are on the diagnosis list of being the most affected in the inpatient arena
