Question: I need help with E/M Coding

jrunci1 - Wed May 26, 2004 7:08 pm

I am researching E/M coding, and I haven't found anything so far that tells me exactly how to decide which level of E/M go with which procedures and diagnoses. Can you please walk me through a patient encounter and tell me exactly what goes on with the paperwork. I would like to know exactly what the doctor writes down, and how the E/M level is decided according to the written information.

Thank you.
