Evaluation, Management Coding, and Documentation - What All Psychiatrists in Clinical Practice Need to Know
The changes to how physicians select, and document evaluation and management services continue. Beginning in January 2023, all evaluation and management (E/M) services in all settings (including hospital, and nursing facility settings) will use the same billing rules in place currently for outpatient services -- all E/M’s will be billed on the basis of medical decision making, rather than history or exam OR by time, when psychotherapy is not being provided. The webinar will review the medical decision table, and rules around time. The discussion includes how to select the appropriate level of E/M service and how to document care for billing purposes. While the changes for 2023 are focused on facility-based care, there will be a review of proper coding and documentation for outpatient services as well.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review the code selection criteria for evaluation and management services in all settings of care.

2. Distinguish how to use the revised table on Medical Decision Making.

3. Apply the generally accepted documentation requirements for evaluation and management services and psychotherapy.

4. Integrate the current coding and documentation requirements associated with telepsychiatry.
