    Based on this note I would go with a 99232. Even though the MDM was only straightforward you only need two of the three for these visits. I got EPF for the history and EPF(97) or detailed(95) for the exam. I'd be interested to see what others get.

    I'm leaning more towards a 99232 as well (according to 1995 guidelines).

    I agree 99232 - based on exam (EPF) and medical decision making. (moderate)
