    If a pain management specialist collects urine for a drug screening during a follow-up visit, can the complexity of the visit be bumped up?

    not necessarily could be yet maybe no. There is much yet to this story we do not have, there are many components of MDM and just the presence or absence of a drug screen cannot be said to have an effect at all without the rest of the story.
