2021 Coding Changes – WAFP and AAFP resources

If you missed our Coding Changes Seminar on 11/4 with experts from AAFP regarding upcoming changes to coding rules in 2021, a recording of the presentation is available, along with the accompanying slides.

Our AAFP presenters for this event were Erin Solis, Manager of Practice and Payment Practice Advancement, and Kent Moore, Senior Strategist for Payment.

This session addressed the coding changes coming into effect January 1st. Some of the topics include: how the changes will benefit family physicians, how coding and sign-off should happen for supervised team members (RNs, signing off on PA work), and impact on third-party and Medicaid billing.

This article from AAFP outlines some tools that may be helpful in preparation for these changes, and this one provides an overview.
