Hi everyone,

If a provider is seeing a patient for a self-limited problem (level 2) with minimal MDM and orders a refill-prescription drug management (level 4) would the E/M be a 99212 or a 99213? I am having difficulty deciding the best way to level the visit.

Thank you

If there was no data ordered or reviewed, no independent historian, etc, then I would think that would be a level 2 visit, 99212, because you need 2 out of 3 to meet or exceed. What's the problem that is self-limited but somehow gets a prescription refilled for?
