Our family practice Doc's see their assisted living patients once a year for
an annual physical exam in our office. This includes extensive paperwork for the facility (for their federal and state compliance) These patience are all Medicare with Medicaid 2nd . Our Compliance is recommending that our providers go to the facility using 99318.... My question is in researching CMS
guidelines it states medical necessity is required . If all the required paperwork
and documentation is driven by a routine diagnosis how can i use this cpt or am
i missing something.... please help.......
