    Default Same E/M rules apply

    There are no special rules for Podiatry with respect to the history portion of E/M coding. The requirements for history are the same for every physician coding E/M.

    Your level of new patient visit is determined by the lowest of the three key elements: History, Exam, MDM.

    Hope that answers your question.
