Learn what’s new in the CPT® code book for 2021. This high-level overview will provide a summary of the changes in store for your practice. Now that the code sets are active, it is important for practices to dive in, and see what’s deleted, changed and added. This webinar will provide only a high level, concise review of changes to codes 99202–99215.
Participants will learn which specialties will see the most changes and how to tell at a glance if their specialty will have many or few changes. This session will review the key symbols CPT® uses and describe the information a practice can know from these.
What’s new this year? Besides the long-anticipated changes to the office/outpatient codes, there is a new prolonged services code and changes to the rules for existing prolonged care. Coding for chronic care management is updated, again. The definitions for breast surgery are revised, new codes in the cardiovascular surgical section, and revisions in diagnostic or therapeutic somatic nerve injections. The medicine section has new codes for audiology and external ECG testing.
