Can ROS be pulled from the Physical Exam

  1. Default Can ROS be pulled from the Physical Exam
    Medical Coding Books
    For subsequent hospital inpatient visits, can review of systems be pulled from the physical exam to consider the history as one of the two components in determining the level of service?

    Default Response: Can ROS be pulled from the Physical Exam
    Do not count physical observations as ROS. Physical observations are to be counted only as elements of the Physical Examination.

    No - ROS is strictly a q&a; exam is actual physical observation/examination.
