Radiation Oncology E/M


Best answers
Good Morning,
I'm wondering if there are any resources out there to help with E/M coding for radiation oncology that someone can share. More specifically, I'm looking for examples of what the documentation would look like and the reasoning behind the E/M codes selected.

One of my most pressing conundrums is deciding on an accurate Risk score. I'm coming across many patients that are being seen for a follow up, nothing is noted to be getting worse and seems stable. No documentation to assume otherwise. Nothing more is being done currently, pt either has completed radiation tx or will begin after chemo, but I can't decide if the risk for this would be low or moderate. Any advise or direction would be much appreciated.
