Is it acceptable for the MD to state "Otherwise Negative " or "Unremarkable" in the past surgical and medical history? Would it qualify as PFSH? If not is there documentation that states this? My MAC is Novartis formerly Highmark Medicare.

a simple addendum:
Consider typing "unremarkable" or non-contributory in the search function box and it will pull up numerous responses relating to your issue. ---Suzanne

Novartis is my MAC and I know that they will only allow non-contributory for the family history and the family history only. However, we have our doctors make a comment about what they asked (i.e. no family history of cancer) rather than using non-contributory as some insurances do not accept this. As far as for the Social and Past history - something needs to be documented for these, such as no surgeries, no medications, etc. for past history and does not smoke, lives with family, etc. for social.

Hope this helps!
