Evaluation and Management Coding
The Coding Subcommittee of the Medical Economics and Management Committee has developed E/M templates for use by neurologists as a means to assist them in coding appropriately for level 1, 2, and 3 initial and subsequent hospital visits; use level 2, 3, 4, and 5 for established and new patient/consultation.
