In Case You Missed It – Recording of Panel Discussion on E/M Coding Reform

On July 12, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed historic changes that would increase the amount of time that doctors and other clinicians can spend with their patients by reducing the burden of paperwork that clinicians face when billing Medicare. CMS held listening sessions all over the country and heard from thousands of providers and one thing they consistently brought up was how documentation was needlessly burdensome, wasn’t improving patient care, and was actually having a negative impact on patient care. CMS listened and proposed streamlining the documentation requirements for E&M visits, as well as moving to single payment rates.

Watch CMS Administrator Seema Verma, CMS Chief Medical Officer and Director of CCSQ Kate Goodrich, Dr. Donald Rucker, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, Dr. Anand Shah, CMMI Chief Medical Officer and Dr. Thomas A. Mason, ONC Chief Medical Officer discuss proposed E/M Coding changes.
