Prepare for Huge E/M Changes: CMS’ Game-Changing Payment, Documentation Proposals - On-Demand


Available ON-DEMAND

Presented on:
Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Presented by:
Betsy Nicoletti, CPC

Level of Program:

The 2019 proposed Medicare physician fee schedule, released July 12, signals that CMS is serious about overhauling its E/M reimbursement structure and revising its documentation guidelines completely—as soon as January 1. Yet because E/M services are at the heart of many practices’ revenue, these changes could significantly disrupt current E/M payment policies and documentation guidelines. Practices need to understand CMS’ proposals to chart a clear strategy should the changes come to fruition.

At the conclusion of this program, you will be able to:

  • Discover how CMS’ proposals would dramatically shift a major source of revenue: your E/M encounters
  • Find out the direct impact on your revenue cycle and billing operations
  • Discern the E/M documentation changes you should be preparing for
  • Take steps to get ahead of CMS’ E/M changes and prepare your practice for success


  • See how CMS envisions a new dawn for E/M payments, starting with a single payment rate for levels 2 through 5 codes
  • Find out what documentation standards CMS favors (hint: medical decision-making and time) and how you may choose your own course next year
  • Discover which specialties stand to gain or lose money under the proposed payment changes
  • Do what you can to prepare: With changes coming fast, be proactive to get your practice ready to continue operations without missing a beat
