Chart #1) I like your counting. Good food for thought. I am coming up with 99213 with 784.0 and 401.9. Det, Exp, Low. Right?
Chart #2 (Darvocet med): You are right, if it is established, it is 99214 with 786.50. Any other Dx codes you can think of? New pt, 99203. Do you feel this a new or established pt?
I was also trying to figure out how, or if, I should code the EKG. I went around and around with this EKG thing.
EKG: I have a partial EKG strip that appears to have been done in the Internal Med office; and a doctor note on the strip that said "normal EKG" and he signed it. I also have a short description of rate, rhythm and sinus under the "chest" part of the exam, as you saw. What do you think on this?
Take care and talk to you after Christmas.
