Can teeth be counted for EENT when working E/M?

Heidi Posted Thu 06th of September, 2018 13:03:24 PM
We have a physician who performed the physical exam on the patient and used, "Missing teeth," for his ENT portion; can this be counted as an organ system? We are billing Examination level based on 1995 guidelines, so we're trying to confirm if teeth can be counted for that, thanks!

Hi Sherry,

 

You are correct. When a physician has performed physical exam based on 1995 guidelines, then this should be counted in ENT (mouth) under Organ System. So one point can be given to this.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any question.

 

Thanks
