Backlash continues over the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed changes to evaluation and management (E&M) coding and reimbursement found inside the proposed 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.
But it’s not all bad news. On this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, when Sally Streiber, president of Practical Coding Solutions, LLC, returns to the broadcast and launch part one of her two-part series reviewing the proposed changes.
Sally will begin the first part of her series with the “ugly,” notably a 50 percent reduction of the less-expensive service when an E&M code and a procedure are billed on the same date of service. Sally will return on Aug. 28 with part two, reporting the good and the bad of other anticipated impacts.
