short answer - yes
you can charge an E/M even if vitals aren't taken. Vitals are a "bullet" not a requirement. As long as documentation supports the 3 components of an E/M you can bill/code the E/M. Vitals aren't "always" taken. Other "bullets" are/can be marked under each component. (several to choose from)
