With medical decision making (MDM) as the key element for the new E/M services guidelines, documenting the medical necessity is more important than ever. This session will walk through the key revisions to the E/M guidelines and discuss ways in which basic documentation principles will ensure that the medical record documentation paints a complete picture of the services rendered, and support the medical necessity of code selection for each level.
