Medical necessity is the overarching criterion in billing-

I guess per Medicare, Medical Necessity is “Services or supplies that are needed for the diagnosis or treatment of your medical condition and meet accepted standards of medical practice.”

I think this also have plenty of meanings- what is the best way to understand and absorb if encounter meets medical necessity?

I am a pro-fee coder e/m in inpatient unit-
