Family Practice Updates for 2014

Know the Ins and Outs of Transitional Care Management To Meet All The Required Elements

The much anticipated implementation of ICD-10 has meant a freeze on new diagnostic codes for 2014.  CPT on the other hand has published significant changes in the Complex Chronic Care Coordination Services Code (CCCC) guidelines and made noteworthy clarifications to the Transitional Care Management Service Codes. There are four new CPTcodes for Interprofessional Telephone/Internet Consultations that are used in assessment and management service in which the patient's treating physician requests an opinion and/or advice of a specialist.. These codes have face-to-face encounter restrictions and are time based codes.  All three of these E&M codes represent work frequently done in a primary care/family practice office.  Lastly, we see modifying influenza vaccine codes as a yearly occurrence however, this year we also seen several new codes.
