Mdm - problem points would be

  1. Default Mdm - problem points would be
    Medical Coding Books
    In the MDM section where does two acute problems fall when you have an expanded problem focus history and a detailed exam......this would be acute sinusitis and upper respiratory. Scripts where written.

    The problem points for self-limited is - 1
    est chronic, controlled - 1
    est chronic, uncontrolled 2
    New no further w/u - 3

    would 2 acute illness be two New with no further w/u = 6 ?

    I think this is a 99214, but want to know what the problem points would be?

    I am confused on acute illness.

    thanks, J

    First of all, you can only count one new problem/no additional work up = 3 points. Then it is going to depend on amount and complexity of data and the risk...if you have 3 in problem status and an Rx provided (prescription drug management) in risk, you'd be looking at moderate complexity MDM.
