Evaluation and Management: Medical Decision Making Documentation

Green Clock Hours: 0.50

The Evaluation and Management (E/M) Section is the most widely used section of the American Medical Association's (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code set. This course introduces the basics of the E/M medical decision-making (MDM) component in a patient encounter. It explains the important terms and definitions and the requirements for the different levels of medical decision-making included in the CPT Evaluation and Management (E/M) Services Guidelines and in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) 1995 and 1997 documentation guidelines for E/M services. A current copy of the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®), Professional Edition is strongly recommended to optimize your understanding of the content covered and help you master medical decision-making coding.

Important Note
The CPT code set is designated for reporting physician and other qualified health care professional (QHP) services. It is also the designated code set for reporting services provided by organizations or facilities in specific circumstances. Throughout the CPT code set, use of terms such as physician or qualified health care professional/QHP is not intended to indicate that other entities may not report the service. In selected instances, specific instructions may define a service as limited to professionals or limited to other entities (e.g., hospital or home health agency).

The codes and information in this course receive a comprehensive review annually and are updated as needed.
