I need someone to help me.

We have 4 HPI, 2 PFSH, 6 ROS, and 13 Phy. Exam. We need 9 ROS and only 8 Phy. Exam in order to charge a level 5. Can we use the extra Phy. Exam for the 3 ROS that we are missing as long as we are not duplicating the areas?

Can anyone out there help me please?:confused:

Emphasis added by FTB to show what question I'm answering.

No. ROS is a review of systems done by the physician (or whoever is taking the ROS) asking the patient questions about previous symptoms/conditions.

The physician exam is a recording of the physician direct observations from examining the patient at this encounter.

They are not interchangeable.

Hope that helps.
