Learn About CPT Coding Tips: The Codes You Probably Forgot To Bill. In addition to determining payment, Medicare also dictates what documentation is required in the patient’s medical record to justify billing any given CPT code. As we are going to see today, there are some pretty major changes in CPT coding and documentation this year, particularly for outpatient office visits. With that as an introduction, let me introduce today’s guest. Dr. Neeraj Tayal. Dr. Tayal is a general internist and Professor of Internal Medicine at the Ohio State University. He is going to start off today’s program with an overview of changes in outpatient office visit coding. For the second half of today’s webcast, I’ll be updating you on some of the outpatient and inpatient codes that many physicians don’t know about and can help ensure that you are being reimbursed for services that you are probably already providing.
