Thread: New Patient Level

  1. #1

    Default New Patient Level

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a question. Say you have a EPF, a D and a Moderate exams for a new patient. Do you pick the lowest exam or the middle one?

    Thank you

    I'm not sure I understand your question - it sounds as though you're asking about different levels "exam" components.. in which case more info would be needed to determine the level of E/M (such as the Histor & MDM) however,
    if you mean:
    EPF - History
    Detailed - Exam
    Moderate - MDM

    then you'd have a level 2 (99202) New patient E/M. all 3 of 3 elements are required for a new patient services / consults.
