Hello Luz,

Thank you for your question.


If the reason of visit was planned, and the purpose was just to get the TMG results reviewed, then the documentation do not qualify for the E/M service; however, the above provided documentation states that the blood tests were done along with brain and cervical MRI, which were essentially non-contributory. If the above work performed was un-planned and the provider performed the service(s) on the billed date of service; then, the documentation qualifies for the E/M service.


Hope that helps!
