    Hi, I'm Nancy. I have a ?. I can't find any code that meets the 3 key components for a visit to the consultant that was an esxpanded problem-focused exam and the MDM was moderate. The closest one is 99244 but it doesn't seem right. Can anyone help me out?

    the highest level you can get with the EPF exam is 99242, if you also have a EPF or higher history.
