Product Description

Understand the Nuances of the New CPT® Codes and Guideline Changes for Internal Medicine


Changes to the 2019 CPT® code set for internal medicine practices are spread across several areas – from lesion removal to biopsies, E&M changes, E&M code additions, and how you “look” at changes and additions to the Guidance section. All are important to familiarize yourself with, so that you can accurately and efficiently code for all your internal medicine related services, and ensure that you receive your full share of reimbursement.

Let medical coding and billing expert Jill Young decode the new 2019 CPT® code set for internal medicine practices in this informative session. Young will show you how to recognize new wording in a section's guidelines so that you can quickly see the changes. You will learn how the changed codes and the new codes are marked in the CPT® books, as well as where to look for the list of changes made to the codes in a summary fashion. Young will also walk you through the 6 new E&M codes; major changes to the reporting of lesion changes; guideline changes to imaging guidance and code selection for lesions; the new guidelines and codes for skin biopsies; the new code for interactive communication with patient/caregiver; and the revised guidelines inter-professional telephone/internet/EHR consultations.

After attending this session, you will be confident in your ability to code and bill precisely according to the new CPT® code set for internal medicine practices. Plus, you’ll be able to minimize the financial losses arising out of claim denials, and maximize the frequency of smooth reimbursements.
