    Medicare will pay for federally mandated visits that monitor and evaluate residents at least once every 30 days for the first 90 days after admission and at least once every 60 days thereafter. You shall also use these codes to report medically necessary E/M visits even if they are provided prior to the initial visit by the physician.
