Patient comes in for stent removal 52310. Stone analysis and prevention is discussed. Ultrasound is scheduled in two weeks to ensure no residual. Does this warrant a level 2 EM?

That depends on the documentation for the office visit and the dx. Read the E/M guidelines to see if it qualifies. If you decide it does, append the 25 modifier on the E/M code.
