Nearly 400 code changes are coming to the CPT Manual for coders to report beginning January 1, 2020, and affecting a wide variety of sections. While major changes for E/M are coming in 2021, new codes for next year will allow providers to take advantage of digital technology in a new way. New codes will allow them to report additional online E/M services, as well as remote monitoring. Other updates include new codes and guidelines for reporting certain musculoskeletal and nervous system procedures, such as dry needling and injections of anesthetic agents to somatic nerves. 

Join expert speaker Adrienne Commeree, CPC, CPMA, CCS, CEMC, CPIP, for this 90-minute webinar as she describes newly reportable procedures, guideline changes, add-on codes, and deleted and revised codes. The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A.
