Would you classify aspiration as a High MDM ?

Hi Sherry,

As per E/M tool simple aspiration is not taken as high MDM. However, you may check with your records, if aspiration is done due to exacerbation of some chronic conditions like malignancy or any other life threathening condition, we will take it as high, so we may check with the related conditions as well. Thank you.
