    Default ROS Documentation

    AAPC: Back to School
    The 1995 documentation guidelines states the following:

    (DG) At least ten organ systems must be reviewed. Those systems with positive or pertinent negative responses must be individually documented. For the remaining systems, a notation indicating all other systems are negative is permissible. In the absence of such a notation, at least ten systems must be
    individually documented.

    Would this statement be acceptable to bill for a complete ROS? "A 10 point review of systems was completed, all systems are negative except as noted above." Above is referring to the HPI.

    Default No

    No, because I don't know which 10 systems are being reviewed. There are 14 systems.
    Just my opinion.

    Default what is in HPI?

    I have to see what specifically is stated in the HPI - you stated "above is referring to HPI".

    Are there pertinent positives & negatives stated in HPI that can be used as ROS without double dipping? Sometimes physicians combine it all together. If not, then I would agree no it would not qualify.
