Thread: Prescription Drug Management

    Default Prescription Drug Management

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a question concerning prescription drug management. I know that if a physician prescribes medicine for the patient that it can be used for prescription drug management. I wanted to know if a physician doesn't prescribe a new prescription but mentions the current mediciation and tells the patient to continue with the same dosage, is that considered prescription drug management.

    I would think so.

    Doctor reviews the current medication and determinesnot to change dosage. The fact that it is not changed still = active prescription drug management. ---Suzanne E. Byrum CPC
