EAlert: CMS Patients over Paperwork07/20/2018
CMS Patients over Paperwork initiative may bring about big changes to the way physicians are currently utilizing Evaluation and Management codes and their documentation requirements.
If the new Physician fee schedule is approved, it expects to significantly reduce documentation burdens. The fees, not the codes themselves, will change. CMS proposes to collapse codes 992X2- 992X5 and make payment the same for these E/M levels—there will be changes to payment incentives regarding these codes.
