    If the patient is an infant, does it automatically make a condition a higher (MDM) risk? I'm sure it depends on the circumstances of the childs birth, birth defect, etc, but what if it is just a cold, or a stomach ache?

    Smile Higher than what?

    It wouldn't automatically qualify for a higher level of MDM. You must still use the Table of Risk which would most likely be low risk for a cold, even for an infant. Sorry.
