Pain Management Diagnosis Coding for Office Visits

    Default Pain Management Diagnosis Coding for Office Visits
    Medical Coding Books
    I am new to pain medicine and have been coding E/M for this specialty for about a month. I need to meet with our physician soon about CDI, in particular, documenting Chronic or Acute pain. I've created a decision tree to try to help him understand how I arrive to the codes I assign. Before I do so, I was hoping there is an experienced pain medicine coder who could review the attached decision tree and let me know whether or not my understanding of the coding conventions for pain is correct.

    I would appreciate any input!
