ANSWER SHEET

  1. Correct answer: c

Why? Levels one and two are incorrect because the provider performed more than the minimum requirements of this level. Level four is incorrect because although the provider did perform a comprehensive history and moderate complexity MDM-both of which this level requires-he or she did not perform a comprehensive exam. In order to bill a level 4 in this category, the provider must document three out of three descriptors, and in this case, he or she only documented two. Thus, you cannot bill a level four for this encounter.

  1. Correct answer: c

Why? Answer “a” is incorrect because code 99385 specifies a preventive medicine visit for a patient between the ages of 18 and 39 years. Answer “b” is incorrect because you must append modifier -25 to the separately identifiable E/M service that the physician performed related to the mole. Answer “d” is incorrect because the physician did not satisfy all three elements of 99202. The physician only performed a problem-focused exam.

  1. Correct answer: a

Why? Answer “b” is incorrect because the guidelines for initial observation care require that the provider discharge the patient on the date other than the date of initial observation care. Answer “c” is incorrect because the guidelines for initial observation care require that the provider discharge the patient on the date other than the date of initial observation care. Answer “d” is incorrect because the guidelines for initial observation care require that the provider discharge the patient on the date other than the date of initial observation care.

  1. Correct answer: b

Why? Answer “a” is incorrect because the provider met more than the minimum requirements for this code. Answer “c” is incorrect because the provider must meet the requirements for all three key components. Although the provider met the requirement for the history component, he or she did not meet the requirements for the exam and MDM components. Answer “d” is incorrect because this scenario did not involve two-way voice communication with an ambulance or rescue personnel.

  1. Correct answer: c

Why? Answer “a” is incorrect because this is a pediatric critical care code. Answer “b” is incorrect because this code only represents 30-74 minutes of critical care, and the physician in this example performed 90 minutes of critical care. Answer “d” is incorrect because this would represent 105-134 minutes of critical care, and the physician in this example only performed 90 minutes of critical care.

  1. Correct answer: c

Why? Answer “a” is incorrect because this code should only be used for E/M services for rest home patients-not care plan oversight. Answer “b” is incorrect because this code only encompasses 15-29 minutes of care plan oversight. Answer “d” is incorrect because this code should only be used for E/M services for rest home patients-not care plan oversight.

  1. Correct answer: d

Why? Answer “a” is incorrect because the provider met more than the minimum requirements for this level. Answer “b” is incorrect because although the provider met the requirements for this level, this code should only be used when providers render E/M services in a domiciliary, rest home, or assisted living facility. Answer “c” is incorrect because although the provider met the requirements for this level, this code should only be used for established patients.

  1. Correct answer: a

Why? Answer “b” is incorrect because this code signifies an intermediate level conversation. Answer “c” is incorrect because this code signifies a complex/lengthy conversation. Answer “d” is incorrect because this code involves a medical conference, and the physician in our scenario simply performed a telephone call. He or she did not participate in a conference.

  1. Correct answer: c

Why? Answer “a” is incorrect because this code represents more than 30 minutes of care plan oversight services for a patient under the care of a home health agency. Answer “b” is incorrect because this code only signifies 15-29 minutes of care plan oversight services for a hospice patient. Answer “d” is incorrect because this code represents more than 30 minutes of care plan oversight services for a nursing facility patient.

  1. Correct answer: d

Why? Answer “a” is incorrect because this represents a periodic comprehensive preventive medicine exam. Answer “b” is incorrect because this represents an initial comprehensive preventive medicine exam for a patient who is between the ages of one and four years. Answer “c” is incorrect because this represents an initial comprehensive preventive medicine exam for a patient who is 65 years and older.

  1. Correct answer: c

Why? Answer “a” is incorrect because the physician did not mention that he or she performed a history of exam of the newborn. Answer “b” is incorrect because you should not use this code in a birthing room setting. Answer “d” is incorrect because the physician did not provide newborn resuscitation.
