okay so I came across a report in which the levels are as follow:

Established patient (2/3 components)
however I have one of each:

History = Comprehensive
Examination = Detailed
MDM = Low

would this be coded is 99213 or a 99214??

Is there a rule of thumb for such outcomes??

THANKS!!! :confused:

Medical necessity?

Was it medically necessary to do the comprehensive history and detailed exam? I have providers who will be so complete for exam and history and its only a cough with cough syrup prescribed. Def not a 99214 visit...
