    Default Noridian 1995 E&M Guidelines

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have a link or a document showing Noridian requires 5-7 body areas/organ systems for a detailed exam? I have the 95 guidelines but it does not state this information.

    I have not seen anything that states that you need to have 5 - 7 for a detailed exam. I work with 95 guidelines and my understanding is if you have two or more Body Areas/Organ Systems documented with one or more in "great" detail then you have a detailed examination. You can also use this link from Noridian for their Evaluation & Management Resource manual.


    Have a great day!
