From MedicareIs this written in the CPT book somewhere? What happens if the patient is seen every 3 months or 6 months? that is ok to say this is prescription drug management if that would give them 99214s everytime?
Can you tell me where you found this on Medicare?From Medicare
What constitutes prescription drug management?Q. During an evaluation and management visit, what constitutes “prescription drug management?”
A. “Prescription drug management” is based on documented evidence that the provider has evaluated medications as part of a service, in relation to the patient. This may be a prescription being written or discontinued, or a decision to maintain a current medication/dosage.
Note: Simply listing current medications is not considered “prescription drug management.”

No, this is not warrant for prescription management. PFAIf my provider is doing a consult in the hospital and says he agrees with ongoing broad-spectrum antibotics while we await culture results, could this be considered prescription management? (moderate decision making)

Medicare FCSCO is not the same as CMS... I am not sure I would take this at face value.
