    Default MDM Help please

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Morning,

    I just went to a coding class last night given by a Doctor. He stated that if you prescribe antibotics it is considered drug management "a moderate risk visit". Please give me your thoughts.

    Thank you,

    On the table of risk they do list prescription drug management but in my dealings they have to have documented the exact drug, dosage and what it will be used for. But just because the risk is moderate does not make the MDM moderate!
