Advanced guidance on E/M code values for EMR and evaluational documentation systems.

Evaluation and management (E/M) coding is notoriously difficult because coders may have trouble selecting the correct code from among a range of seemingly appropriate choices.

Consequently, providers can make more mistakes with E/M coding than coding for any other item or service. The Evaluation and Management Coding Advisor 2021 offers detailed and advanced guidance on selecting the appropriate E/M codes, with helpful resources designed for difficult E/M coding situations.
