My understanding from attending Medicare workshops & webinars; Medicare will use the guideline that will benefit the provider. So, they might use "95" on 1 patient & "97" on another. So, your answer is yes.
You just can't use "95" & "97" guidelines on 1 patient, (95 guideline for HPI & 97 for exam) it is either/or.
