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.
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.
