The E/M Office Visit Reference Guide, Third Edition delivers a comprehensive overview of the E/M documentation guidelines and a clear, in-depth analysis of all updates and changes, including guidance on the medical decision-making (MDM) guidelines so that you can ensure accurate coding and billing.

Use the E/M Office Visit Reference Guide, Third Edition to train staff, reduce the risk of miscoding and the denials and audits that may result, and lessen the disruption to a key revenue stream. Given the amount of reimbursement dollars tied to the E/M codes, a lack of readiness could spell financial disaster. E/M office visits account for 20% of total physician fee schedule charges. In 2018, practices gained $15.6 billion in payments from Medicare for the suite of E/M office visit codes 99201-99215.
