Documentation guidelines for evaluation and management (E/M) of new and established patient visits have not changed since 1997, but on Jan. 1, 2021, a new series of guidelines will take effect. If your practice bills for services using these types of codes, you will need to prepare for the new definitions and concepts to understand the guidelines.
Academy experts from each specialty have developed resources and clinical examples to ease your transition from the 1997 E/M to the new 2021 E/M documentation requirements. Watch for new information as we near the implementation date.
