Thread: EKG Ordered

    Smile EKG Ordered

    AAPC: Back to School
    When physician orders a EKG and independently visualizes can he count this as one (1) point for ordering it and two (2) points for personally visualizing it. All this is done at same visit. Where can I get Documentation to back this.
