The teaching physician rules provide payment to an attending physician for services performed jointly by an attending and a resident. CMS updated these rules significantly in 2019 and 2020. This webinar will describe the changes to documenting E/M services and in using notes documented by students. It will also review the rules for minor and major surgical procedures, endoscopy, critical care and psychiatry.

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify who may document the attending’s participation for E/M services
- Describe what the attending must document to use documentation by students
- Delineate required documentation for major and minor procedures
