The provider carries out an assessment requiring medical decision–making of moderate complexity on a patient with one to two health–related issues that affect physical activity. He takes a medical history and uses a standardized patient assessment instrument (criteria agreed upon by a group of experts) and/or a functional outcome measurement tool to evaluate a patient with an athletic injury; evaluation includes examination of affected body area and three or more elements relating to symptoms or body structures, physical activities, and/or limitations on participation. This service typically takes 30 minutes of face–to–face time with patient and/or family.
