    Default Help!! How would you code this visit??

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient here for pre-op H&P for clearance of her HTN before she has excision of a ft foot Haglund deformity secondary to pain. She is also here for her annual exam and pap smear. Patient seen by PA.
    Was here on 9/24 w/compliant of severe fatigue & crying all the time. She had been on prozac for a few yrs for depression but stopped it thinking that maybe that was causing her fatigue. When she came in she was very tearful. I checked her thyroid and her TSH was a little elevated but her free T4 was normal. Due to her symptoms I started on L-Thyroxine 25mg & Sertraline 25 mg daily. She said she is feeling much better and not tearful all the time but still some fatigue.
    A complete PFSH was dictated and a complete ROS was dictated.Also a comprehensive exam was done. EKG was obtained and over-read by a physician. Shows sinus rhythm with no acute changes.

    Hypothyroidism, started on supplement
    PLAN: Will schedule now for a CBC,BMP and fasting lipid. UA was done and negative. She is schedule for her mammogram. I refilled her ALdomet for 1 yr and increased her Sertraline up to 50mg w/refills for 1 yr. She is to call me in couple of months and let me know how she is doing on that dose of Sertaline. Will check thyroids again in November.

    THe PA was wanting to bill a 99215. I just don't think this is correct. Please advise. Thanks.
