MDM help

Are you asking if this is moderate risk because the MDM cannot be determined without the amount of diagnoses and data points which you did not provide. If the provider is writing a prescription for 800 mgs of ibuprofen then this would be a moderate risk as prescription drug management. However if the provider is advising to take ibuprofen OTC then the risk would be low.
