Welcome to Coffee with the Coder®, our conversation with Paula Digby and her team to address issues, observations and questions for Health Information Management professionals. You are invited to listen in for ten minutes every other Monday and to submit your favorite questions or comments for Coffee with the Coder®

In today’s episode Paula Digby shares five questions from the AMA conference in Chicago last month. We begin with whether the E&M guidelines will be updated soon, and continue with a G Code that has been deleted for 2018. Next there’s a scenario involving a patient receiving hydration for a length of time, having a break from the hydration, and receiving additional hydration on the same day. Mini laparotomy during a laparoscopic procedure is next, followed by our final question regarding the use of a student as a scribe.
