Overview:   Earlier in 2022, the American Medical Association (AMA) released the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code set for 2023, which contains updates that aim to reduce medical coding burden for evaluation and management (E&M) visits. The AMA revised coding guidelines across care settings and services to align with 2021 E&M coding standards eliminating patient history and physical exam elements from the E&M coding process, when appropriate. In the 2023 Physician Fee Schedule, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) adopted most of the changes, but also retained several of their current policies, and created new Medicare-specific prolonged services codes. Coding Compliance created PeoplePlace Learn modules to make sure that providers and familiar with the rules and apply them accordingly when performing, documenting, coding and billing E&M services.
