Coding in the World of COVID-19: Non-Face-to-Face Evaluation and Management Care

Discussion with Bruce H. Cohen, MD, FAAN and Neil A. Busis, MD, FAAN

In this insightful discussion from Continuum® Audio, Associate Editor Dr. Allison Weathers interviews Drs. Bruce H. Cohen, MD, FAAN and Neil S. Busis, MD, FAAN as they take an in-depth look at the powerful and versatile role of non-face-to-face Evaluation and Management (aka E/M) services and cognitive care in our emerging and uncertain era of the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. This distance-based approach, also commonly known as telehealth or telemedicine, has become more gradually incorporated into medical practice in recent years — and will almost certainly see an aggressive uptick in our time of preventative “social distancing.” This approximately 38-minute interview, based on the article to be published in the neurology journal Continuum®, takes a closer look at the most common forms of non-face-to-face E/M care — and the proper Common Procedural Terminology (CPT) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding Systems (HCPCS) coding elements required to effectively provide these services. The interview also covers four helpful and distinct case studies for further clarification.
