Thread: E/M-Table of Risks

    Default E/M-Table of Risks

    AAPC: Back to School
    When determining risk (based on the Table of Risk), would the performance of a bronchscopy without the risks being indentified and the patient not having any respiratory co-morbidities, be classified as moderate risk? "Diagnostic endoscopic with no identified risk."

    Does the risk have to be listed in order to classified as high or can the risks be "implied?

    Default MUST be specifical stated by provider

    When looking at the table of risk chart for choosing level of MDM .. Identified risk factors must be specifically stated by the provider. They can not be implied.

    Hope that helps.
