    My question to you all, how would a physician document a follow up on a abnormal mammogram??? To justify a level of service for a E/M.

    If the visit was for counseling/coordination of care regarding the results and further treatment options, I think it would be sufficient to document the nature and length of time spent counseling. If greater than 50% of the visit, the provider can bill based on time.
