2021 Evaluation and Management Coding Advisor

Evaluation and management (E/M) coding is notoriously difficult because coders may have trouble selecting the correct code from among a range of seemingly appropriate choices. Consequently, providers can make more mistakes with E/M coding than coding for any other item or service. This resource offers detailed and advanced guidance on selecting the appropriate E/M codes, with helpful resources designed for difficult E/M coding situations.
