Would anyone be able to clarify for me when the Table of Risk references Parenteral Controlled substances (High Management option) would only a controlled substance (FDA schedule I-V) qualify for this level or would any substance that is given parenterally (IM, IV, SQ, etc) qualify. I am new to E/M coding and am unsure if it is appropriate to count this for the administration of an IV antibiotic or diuretic (eg), or if only medications that are classified as a controlled substances qualify. Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

Yes, i beleive only controlled substances qualify for this high reisk level of management options. If the medication given in the IV is not controlled you could use a moderate risk level.
