ACEP has developed comprehensive FAQs to help you navigate the AMA CPT 2023 Documentation Guidelines changes. The ACEP Coding and Nomenclature Advisory Committee (CNAC) has thoroughly researched the once-in-a-generation change to the documentation guidelines that determine Evaluation and Management (E/M) code levels of service.
These FAQs are tailored specifically to emergency medicine coding, covering the new AMA CPT definitions and MDM grid along with an ACEP approved scoresheet to assist in determining the level of ED E/M service.
ACEP's Reimbursement and Coding Committees have you covered. Our FAQs are some of our most popular online features and are reviewed and updated annually.
Increasing the Value of Your Work
ACEP is the only EM organization that is part of the AMA’s Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC), which makes recommendations to CMS on how you are paid. We use our seat at the table to ensure your reimbursement reflects your realities.
Fighting for fair reimbursement is one of the ways ACEP has your back.
