I plan to take the E/M Exam sometime next year and im studying pretty early. I would like to know if there is a difference between the 95 and 97 guildlines?
and also the exam is it multiple choice or do you have to right the answer in yourself?
any information will be helpful.


thanks to all

The 1995 guidelines are based on systems and/or body areas, where as the 1997 guidelines for examination are based on a multisystem or single organ system examination table. Take a look at the last page (18) and see if this helps. Also, for multi-specialties, I find that the 97 guidelines are more user friendly (in my opinion).
