I have a really nice laminated emergency room E/M table (chart) from CMS. On the top it says "CMS DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS SUMMARY." It helps decide what E/M level to use by going down the table. Do any of you know if there's one for OP or clinic E/M?

Thank you!

This isn't directly from CMS; if you look at the small print, you can see that it comes from TSystem...they are your ED department's software. And this is from 2004. Many MACs have changed their criteria since then. If you're trying to instruct your physicians on appropriate documentation for E&M, I would look to see what your MAC has currently published.

Also, where it's hanging in the ED---is this the criteria that the facility is using to level their ED technical visits? Usually they have some sort of resource based point system, but maybe they're using this criteria.

Good luck.
