SESSION SUMMARY AND SPEAKER INFORMATION

8:00 – 9:00 am   Keynote

Keynote: Winning Together!

Speaker: Dustin Dale

9:15 am- 10:15 am   1st Breakout

E&M: Key up the Focus to Complexity and Risk

Speaker: Shannon DeConda, CPC, CEMC, CEMA, CPMA, CRTT

Description: Prior to the new E&M guidelines, AMA CPT did not reference medical necessity. The Claim Process Manual was our main point of reference for statement: "Medical necessity is the overarching determining factor". While 2021 Documentation Guidelines uses 2 key components of time and MDM, the guidelines came armed with references of medical necessity littered throughout inferring that maybe it's NOT always just 2 or the 3 key components. Let’s consider medical necessity
