Do you have a "table of risk" that you can show them so they can see what CMS themselves have put under that high risk section??
I audit family practice...and it is rare that I see something that meets the criteria for high risk. They gotta be pretty sick...respiratory distress/severe asthma attack...sever side effect of a medication for a chronic illness...
In the CPT book there are examples of scenarios for the codes...well there ae in mine, professional edition...there are only a couple for fam practice.
One says a male- being seen for 3 month hx of weight loss, fever, fatigue w. adenopathy and splenomegaly.
Other says 70 y/o F w/ DM and HTN, two mo hx of confusion, agitation, and short term memory loss.
Hope this helps...
