Understanding How Time and
MDM Drive Office Visit Coding

Do you have a favorite E/M code and you “just stick with it?” Or, does uncertainty keep you coding all low level visits? This webinar will transform uncertainty to certainty in selecting office visits. It answers the questions surgeons ask. When is a visit high complexity? Does data make a difference in the level of service, or should I just ignore that? How do I document surgical risk in order to get credit in the E/M guidelines? How is the level of service changed if I recommend surgery but the patient opts not to have the procedure?

This webinar will review the components of medical decision-making that matter for surgeons. And, in what specific situations using time is the better option.

After the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe a high complexity case based on medical decision-making
  • Document data review that is credited in the guidelines
  • Assess the time statement in their templates and update it as needed


Betsy Nicoletti simplifies complex coding for physicians and their staff, allowing medical practices to get paid for the services performed.
