Good afternoon everyone!
I know we discussed having the next council meeting in November, but due to scheduling conflicts, we decided the next council meeting will be held on December 8, 2020 from 2-4 pm. This will be a virtual meeting and I will send out the link once that is available. Our speakers will be Stacey Upton, RHIT, CCS and she will be discussing the CPT updates and Breanna Allred, RHIT and she will be discussing the Outpatient/ E/M level updates. There will be a lot of good information for everyone at this meeting, so I am hoping everyone will be able to participate. If anyone has questions regarding outpatient coding or E/M levels please send those questions to me so I can forward those to Breanna, this way she can get all the necessary documentation and she can be better prepared to answer those questions. We don’t get to talk about the E/M levels often so this is the perfect opportunity to get all your questions answered.
