    Arrow MDM for Re-pap visit
    Medical Coding Books
    Sometimes, a physician can make you a little crazy and I am having one of those moments and I would like to hear from my colleagues.

    Re-pap for an abnormal pap on an established patient.

    Diagnosis - 1 = Stable or improving condition
    Data - 1 = Lab
    Risk - Low = for one stable chronic condition

    Which equals Straight Forward MDM (99212)

    Would any of you consider a Re-pap as a worsening condition?

    Thank in advance for your opinions,

    I would not count as a worsening condition, unless the physician has some type of statement within the note. Just for argument sake when was the abnormal pap diagnosed? And when was the "re-pap"? Is there any clinical documentation in this pap report that the pathologist and /or the physician has compared this re-pap with a previous abnormal pap?

    Just some food for thought.
