This is how we train our coders on 2-7 limited vs. 2-7 detailed:
Using the 1997 Documentation Guidelines, limited requires 6 or more bullets and extended requires 12 bullets or more. In order to meet the 1995 Guidelines of limited, we need to have around 6 bullets; for a detailed exam, we need to have around 12 bullets. Some coders, in order to feel compliant, need to have 6 / 12 or more exactly. Other coders are comfortable with around 6 or around 12, whichever you can defend. We use both guidelines, but rely on bullets to help justify the exam component. Hope this helps.
