When auditing pediatric office visit E&M codes, I'm not certain where, if anywhere on the Medical Decision Making score page, the provider gets credit for consulting state data bases to be certain the patient is not getting amphetamines prescribed or filled elsewhere. Any thoughts?

I would say that it would only be relevant if the provider was directly addressing the issue of possible misuse with the patient during the encounter.
