    I would code it as a problem-oriented visit, don't forget that 97 guidelines can be used when you are statusing 3 chronic/inactive diseases.

    I could go either way on this one, I would just make sure that if you are charging for a physical that the documentation is there. Physicals require documentation going far beyond just an annual check up for 3 specific conditions, it should include a multi-system exam as well as a full review of systems.
