    I need someone to help me.

    We have 4 HPI, 2 PFSH, 6 ROS, and 13 Phy. Exam. We need 9 ROS and only 8 Phy. Exam in order to charge a level 5. Can we use the extra Phy. Exam for the 3 ROS that we are missing as long as we are not duplicating the areas?

    Can anyone out there help me please?

    Emphasis added by FTB to show what question I'm answering.

    No. ROS is a review of systems done by the physician (or whoever is taking the ROS) asking the patient questions about previous symptoms/conditions.

    The physician exam is a recording of the physician direct observations from examining the patient at this encounter.

    They are not interchangeable.

    Hope that helps.
