I work for a orthopedic surgeon he wants to code a 99204.He uses a Single Organ Musculoskeletal exam sheet for the exam he dictates a full musculoskeletal examination was documented on our office form please see these forms for additional information. I am confused if that is enough the code states they need to do 10 organ systems. He is a specialist a Ortho Surgeon. Please Help confused Cora

He uses the 95 quidlines the back of his sheet says comprehensive exam requires all elements for 4 of six body areas. There are 12 elements listed by each body area would that be like the bullets on the 95 guidlines? I never worked with the 97 Thanks

97 guidelines were developed for specialists you can find them on emuniviersity.com or cms the physical exam hits bullets within the body system instead of separate body systems.
