Take in some sun, gulp the sea air, spin the roulette wheel and … report an E/M home visit code. Under place-of-service clarifications in the 2019 CPT Professional book, your longed-for vacation site could become a new place of business.
Many practices are breathing a sigh of relief after CMS decided to hold off on critical payments changes for E/M services. But don’t get too comfortable just yet.
By this time next week, we should know the answer to a question that has been on the minds of health care stakeholders since July:
 
What in the world will CMS do with E/M visits?
Practices are increasingly pivoting to chronic care management (CCM) services to improve their patients’ care and tap into an available revenue opportunity. In 2017, providers gained more than $103 million in CCM-related payments, a figure that’s up significantly since the service debuted several years ago.
You’ll find new guidance that will help practices document services, code correctly and combat denials in your 2019 CPT manual. The electronic version of the 2019 CPT manual is available and DecisionHealth has reviewed the book to create this overview of some of the revisions and additions in next year's manual.
