    I've never coded podiatry before. Can anyone tell me if all three key components (History,Examination,Medical Decision making) is required for a New patient visit? For History, must a new patient visit have all 3 documented?:medical hx,social hx, family hx? Thank You.

    Default Review CPT Guidelines for E/M

    Review the Guidelinesin CPT for E/M codes. They are the same regardless of which specialty you are coding for.

    Hope that helps.

    I find using the 1995 guidelines easier to use when coding E/M for podiatry.
