    Question ROS in a prevenative medicine vsit

    AAPC: Back to School
    How many ROS are required for a preventaive medicine service? I know its a comprehensive exam but how many is that?

    I'll wager an opinion here.

    My understanding for preventative medicine services, the ROS had to either be extended or complete. An extended ROS (by CPT definition) would be 2-9 systems. A complete ROS (again by CPT definition) would be 10 or more systems. Keep in mind that this may vary according to the age of the patient.

    Hope this helps and again this is my opinion.
