    You said "moderate exam," but I think you meant "moderate MDM," right? I do not believe you can count a medication that you are administering by injection or IV on the same day as "medication management," although I cannot state this with absolute certainty.

    However, the decision to switch the patient off Amrix certainly would count as medication management and give you a moderate Risk Level to count toward your MDM.

    I think it was already a moderate MDM even before the medication review.

    Thanks, Yes I mean MDM not Exam.. thanks for pointing that out, also for your feed back.
    BenCrocker; Thanks also for your feed back.

    Does any one else know with excluding "Monitor switching off Amrix...makes her tired" If medication that are administering by injection or IV on the same day as "medication management" will justiy for MDM as Moderate OR not?
