do you consider a flu shot as medication management for risk during an e/m visit?
I guess it would depend on documentation, but in general I would say no. The influenza vaccine is a preventive measure, not a medication for managing an illness or chronic condition. So in most cases this would not be counted as part of the MDM for an E&M service that, by definition, is for the evaluation and management of a problem.
