    This might not be enough info.
    But I held a coding session with the physicians I work with. And a question was posed.

    What does a physician bill if he is mailed medical records from a patient and reivews it. Can he bill an E/M for this. Patient maybe present or in some cases may not.

    Curious to know myself.

    Told the physician I would get back to him.

    if the patient is NOT present..then you can not bill for anything.

    If the patient IS present, then the doctor can bill for the E/M.
