Evaluation and Management Code Changes

Revisions made by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to its evaluation and management (E/M) codes took effect Jan. 1, 2021. The changes were based on stakeholder input gathered by the AMA Evaluation and Management Work Group, a multispecialty group with representation from the AMA/Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC) and the Current Procedural Terminology Advisory Committee.
