You may qualify for 99203, but I probably wouldn't assign this a higher level than 99202, based on the nature of the presenting problem - there's not a lot of risk in the diagnostic process, treatment options, or in the nature of the complaint itself. Although documentation may allow for you to bill a higher level of service, it wouldn't be medically necessary to assign a higher code based solely on the amount of documentation present. That would be like using an MRI to diagnose a papercut. Hope that helps!
