If the patient is getting an extension on an existing script, ie additional 30 days so they don't run out before their next appointment, they would probably not see the provider at all and no charge would be warranted. If they are coming in for say a 3 month recheck and med refill then they would see the provider and there should be documentation of history, exam and medical decision making elements on which the E/M coding would be based. The diagnosis would be that of the problem(s) they were seen for. Hopefully I understood your question and this is what you are looking for.
