I have an orthopedic dr. that is using a CPT 99455 and on his charge sheet the abbreviation MMI is right beside it. I know what the MMI stands for but I have never used that CPT before. I have read about it in the CPT book, but still need a little help.

thank you

The comp patients can be released to go back to work at any E/M visit. We use the 99455 for a scheduled loss of use only which includes any percentage of disability (per our state's Work Comp Board Medical Guidelines) the patient may have from the work-related injury.
