Medication Management Removal
- hello i am working for a psychiatris and i read in a website that i forgot to save, that medication management is going to be removed from the codes, can anyone confirm this and where can i find more information, thank you.
- You are correct that the procedure codes for psychiatrists are changing
effective January 1, 2013. Psychiatrists will be required to use the
evaluation and management codes that other doctors use in place of the
medical management codes. I have attached some information I have found.
