Product Description

Prepare for the CPT® Code Changes and the 6 New E&M Codes


In releasing the new CPT® codes for 2019, the American Medical Association (AMA) stated that “the latest changes to the CPT® code-set reflect new technologies and scientific advancements available to mainstream clinical practice”. While that's a positive statement, keen coders, billers, office managers, practice managers, physicians, and others associated with your practice know that it's an annual challenge they have to go through as keeping abreast of all changes to the CPT® system is imperative for all practices. However, what many forget is the fact while not being current with the changes that directly affect your practice is a definite negative, sometimes there are changes that indirectly affect you that can also prove to be too costly to ignore!

Stay on top of all the CPT® code changes for 2019 in this information-packed audio conference with medical coding and billing expert Jill M. Young. Young will walk you through the new CPT® codes for 2019, including the six new Evaluation and Management codes (E&M). You will learn where to look up the latest list of code changes and additions – a quick reminder of the information available to you in your updated CPT® book is never time wasted! She will discuss the nine imaging guidance codes that are no longer reportable; the revised guidelines for inter-professional telephone/internet/electronic health record (EHR) consultations; the new code for live interactive communication with patient/caregiver; the new guidelines and codes for skin biopsies, adaptive behavior services area; the changes to lesion removal and gastronomy tube placement codes; and the new codes for catheter insertion and removal along with cardiac monitor codes, among others.

This all-encompassing audio conference on 2019 CPT® codes is highly relevant for all medical practices. It will enable you to make educated decisions to avoid claim denials, and maximize your reimbursements.
