Thread: ROS - Acceptable Statements

    Default ROS - Acceptable Statements

    AAPC: Back to School
    For ROS, what would be an acceptable statement besides 'All other Systems reviewed are negative'?
    Could you accept:
    'Unobtainable at this time'
    'ROS is currently limited'

    for the unobtainable statement it must state why it is unobtainable.
    "ROS is currently limited" tells us nothing about the ROS, so I view that as an unacceptable statement. There must be some pertinent positves and/or negatives documented.
    For TrailBlazers, the "all other" statement is not acceptable.

    WPS will NOT give credit for a full ROS if you are unable to obtain due to (whatever ... coma, trauma, non-English speaking, child without parent present). They instruct specifically to use the 99499 code in these circumstances and submit notes. S I G H.
