So I am getting conflicting information. HELP preferably with links please.
If you order a test in house, ekg, rapid strep, spiro and bill it you are getting credit for TC and 26 Professional component to read it.

Can You count a data point for the order of this test?

No, the "order" of the test is bundled in when you bill for the service. This is what I understood today during a Medicare webinar, it wasn't a specific slide, just a question answered, so I don't have any links for you. I hope this helps.

The new AMA guidelines say that analysis of results-only tests can be counted toward MDM. Any test that has analysis built into the code and is billed separately cannot be counted.

The ordering of the test is not counted separately as @sylviah says above, but is counted with the test interpretation.
