    Default Coding Edge Jan 2008 Questions

    AAPC: Back to School
    I was looking through January's Coding Edge issue and have trouble answering these questions.

    -Name three CPT examples of vital organ system failure.

    -Who must perform an E/M service to correctly bill a Level 1 visit (99211)?

    -A new patient presents with an MRSA skin abscess. The provider indicates dressings and packaging with follow-ups. How would you code the claim?

    -How would you code an evaluation and management (E/M) service provided on an incident to basis by auxiliary personnel who are non-physician practitioners?

    Any help would be appreciated.
