    I have listed under physical examination: HEENT: Exam is unremarkable. Can this be counted? If so, can it be counted for Eyes and then for Ears, Nose, Mouth and Throat?

    Thanks for any help.

    Not under 1997 guidelines. It's too vague - what specifically was unremarkable? Under 97 Guidelines, exam elements must meet the criteria of the bullets in order to count. Under 95 guidelines, I can't remember for sure, (Although I know it was covered in my auditing book), but I want to think it wouldn't have worked for those either. Don't quote me on that, though...

    I would not cout this in either the 95 or the 97 guidelines. Where would you put it? What is unremarkable? The head? Eyes? ENT?
