The support you need to ensure compliance with changing codes, guidelines and documentation requirements

Amid the continuing challenges inherent with charging and billing for evaluation and management (E&M) services, you can quickly get the answers you need from the new edition of our Evaluation & Management Essentials book. Fully updated for 2022, this proven resource covers all the changes to codes, guidelines and documentation requirements. Plus, you’ll find guidance with the new calculations for selecting a level of service based on time or medical decision-making — which initially are applicable only to office visits, meaning there’s a different set of guidelines for hospitals and other settings.

This time-tested resource is ideal for coders, audit and compliance staff, physicians, clinic staff and others; it’s designed to clear up the confusion and instill confidence in confronting many changes.
