    Talking Physician Observation

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need some guidance please. Does the 3 of 3 PFSH only apply to Medicare? Can someone direct me where I can find this information? Thanks!

    Default CPT definition

    Please look at the 2009 CPT Professional Edition page 7 (green sheets), top of left column titled "Determine the Extent of History Obtained."

    Under Comprehensive: ... complete past, family, and social history."

    This is a CPT definition of a complete history. Applies to everyone.
