Guidance for the AMA’s 2023 Outpatient E & M Guidelines
How will the 2023 Outpatient E & M Guidelines impact your revenue? What documentation is now required to demonstrate the acuity of the encounter and the medical decision making involved? Providers continue to face an onslaught of downward market pressures. The implementation of the No Surprises Act, payer demands to accept 50% or greater reductions in-network rates or face contract termination, and new guidelines from the AMA all impact your reimbursement.
