Significant Changes to Evaluation and Management Codes in 2021—Start Preparing Now

March 3, 2020

Starting January 1, 2021, there will be significant changes to the office and outpatient Evaluation and Management (E&M) services Current Procedural Terminology (CPT ®) codes (99202-99215), for both new and established patients. Practices, physicians, and staff must prepare in advance for these changes to ensure a successful transition next year and avoid any disruption in reimbursement.

ASCO is assessing the full impact these changes will have on cancer care delivery and will provide educational resources throughout 2020 to help providers and practices prepare. Bookmark ASCO in Action and ASCO Practice Central to stay up-to-date as these resources become available.
