Important Updates to Evaluation and Management Services in 2023

The American Medical Association has released the new guidelines for Evaluation and Management (E/M) services which will go into effect on January 1, 2023. The guidelines have been updated to bring all the services in line with the 2021 Evaluation and Management changes to office and outpatient E/M CPT codes.
