In this first installment of the JPOSNA Coding Corner, we hope to demystify the 2021 changes for an easier transition to the new coding requirements for E/M billing. Future JPOSNA Coding Corner topics will have a subspecialty focus on billing for different procedures.

Beginning January 1, 2021, changes to the CPT guide-lines for new and established outpatient evaluation and management (E/M) codes take effect. Impacting codes in the ranges 99202-99215 (new and established office or other outpatient categories), the modifications will alter documentation requirements and will affect E/M code selection for pediatric orthopaedic surgeons.
