An auditor told our company in order to bill the abdomen as an organ system you must state bowel sounds. Does anyone have any proof of that? I cannot find anything anywhere. :mad:

Hi,
I don't have proof but the abdomen is not a system so the provider must make a reference to something system related. "Bowel sounds" is related to the GI system so that counts.
When I see notes like "Abdomen- soft / non tender" I can not tell what system it's referring to so I don't count it.
