Key elements of the E/M office-visit overhaul include:

  • Eliminate history and physical exam as elements for code selection
  • Allow physicians to select codes based on medical decision-making (MDM) or time
  • Redefine current medical decision-making criteria
  • Redefine time-based coding to include ALL time invested on the date of service, including chart review and documentation time
