Many articles have been published regarding the 2019 proposed Evaluation and Management coding changes but hopefully, you have taken the time to review those in detail and be ready for them. If not, here is a link to a Find-A-Code article written by Wyn Staheli (Director of Research) entitled, “Are You Ready for the CMS 2019 Medicare Physician Final Rule,” describing the actual changes taking place in 2019.
As we welcome the 2019 new year, it is important to remember that each year the American Medical Association (AMA) releases information on new, revised, and deleted Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes. To avoid denied claims or payment errors, all software, superbills, and any coding and billing documents should be updated to reflect these changes. To assist our subscribers in easily identifying the new, revised, and deleted codes, Find-A-Code publishes them in list format with the code and its description directly linked to the individual code page with all the Find-A-Code information pertaining to the code. To locate this page, simply go to Code Sets and under CPT-Level 1 Codes & Modifiers you’ll find the NEW! 2019 Added, Revised, and Deleted CPT Codes.
