Valid Reason

    Default Valid Reason
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a chart that is coded a 99253.

    The consult page is signed by both docs.
    The reason for consult is blank.

    On the H&P, the reason for consultation is: Management of underlying medical condition.

    I'm looking at it as a 99232. I have an extended HPI and ROS; a complete history and a moderate MDM.

    I agree with you, this is a request for co-management so the consult codes would not be appropriate.
