    Hi everyone, does anyone know if you can add a point in the MDM section for "Review or order tests in the Medicine section of CPT" for a Pulse OX in an ER E&M record? Thanks

    The guidelines indicate you receive one pt for ordering and/or 1 point for reading of the test. It does not give you more than 1 point total.
