Implementing E&M Codes into Daily Practice

The 2013 CPT Code update represents a complete shift in how the delivery of psychiatric care is coded and documented for billing and audit purposes. This webinar, the third in a series of three on the new CPT Codes effective in January 2013, will introduce & discuss Evaluation and Management (E&M) Codes. Through a series of cases the viewer will learn how to select the proper E&M code to accurately code, bill, and document psychiatric services provided on a day to day basis.
