What are Evaluation & Management Services?
Evaluation and Management (E/M) Services, or E/M Coding, is a medical coding process to support medical billing processes. The three main components to E/M services are history, exam, and medical decision making, which cover Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) CPT codes for new and established patient visits. The documentation of medical records is crucial for medical compliance and helps physicians or other health care professionals evaluate patients accurately to provide optimal treatment plans. E/M services streamline the billing process while maintaining compliant to properly document care plans.
