In recent years, significant changes were made to Observation codes, leading to confusion among medical coders. The integration of Observation codes with hospital initial care codes has raised several questions and challenges for coders. Questions such as when to use which codes, what to do when a patient is in observation and then admitted, and which physicians can bill for observation codes have become more common following the changes in CPT.

To address these challenges, industry expert Jill M. Young will lead a webinar aimed at providing attendees with valuable insight and understanding of these coding challenges. This interactive session will offer participants the opportunity to ask tough situational questions and gain clarity on the complexities of observation coding in 2024.
