2024 Healthcare Essentials: A Triple Session on CPT Coding, Medicare, and E/M Updates for 2024

SESSION 1- CPT Coding Updates for 2024 |  SPEAKER: Jill M. Young, CEMA, CPC, CEDC, CIMC

The AMA's annual release of CPT® coding updates for 2024 brings significant changes, comprising 153 new codes and a multitude of revisions across various sections. Among the noteworthy additions are codes in the Surgery subsections, encompassing Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Cardiovascular, Urinary, Female Genital, and Nervous Systems. The Radiology, Pathology, and Laboratory sections also see new entries, including the transition of several Category III codes to Category I, indicating their elevation in significance.

The 2024 edition not only introduces fresh codes but also instigates 349 editorial changes, with 49 codes removed and 70 undergoing revision. Notably, some revisions pertain to unlisted codes (ending in 99) scattered throughout the CPT® book, necessitating a keen understanding of these alterations for accurate coding.

A focal point in the 2024 CPT® edition is the redefinition of split shared visits, deviating notably from CMS guidelines. This deviation opens avenues for potential complexities, emphasizing the importance of grasping the nuances of these changes.

The session aims to elucidate the implications of these modifications, guiding participants through a comprehensive understanding of the 2024 updates. The overarching objective is to equip medical practices with the knowledge needed to navigate the evolving coding landscape successfully.
