General Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

Where can we find the evaluation and management documentation guidelines?

Answer:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) offer a publication on E&M services at https://www.cms.gov/Outreach-and-Education/Medicare-Learning-Network-MLN/MLNProducts/Downloads/eval-mgmt-serv-guide-ICN006764.pdf. Resources for both the 1995 and 1997 guidelines can be found beginning on page 19.
