I would like to know for the 1995 quidlines when doing a examination to get to a level 3 i know you have to get 5 areas/systems. The question is can you mix areas and organ systems? Ny doc did an exam of all 4 extremities and also constitutional,neuro.mental. If so do you know where i can find documentation on that? Thanks so much cora

Yes you can mix them but to get a comprehensive on the exam they must ALL be from the organ systems area. So in this case I would give the provider Det for the exam. I would look at the CMS 1995 guidelines. It should help you define the requirements. Hope that helps.
