For the total for Medical Decision Making, it is 2 out of 3 for the number of diagnosis and management options, amount/complexity of data and table of risk. So as in your example, if you have 3 dx points, 1 data point and moderate risk, you would have moderate complexity medical decision making. Which would be the MDM for a 99214 but you would have to go back to your table with your history and exam, put in your moderate MDM and see how they line up to meet a level of E/M. If both your history and exam were problem focused, even though your MDM was moderate, you aren't going to have a 99214. It's 2 out of 3 here (for an established patient) that determines your level of E/M.
