If we come across a report which says physical exam is deferred and not performed without any definite reason why the physical exam was deferred, can the encounter be considered codeable/billable?

Is time for counseling/coordination of care recorded?

If time spent in counseling/coordination of care is recorded correctly, then you may code using those guidelines ... even if it is a new patient.

Hope that helps.
