  1. Dr. Martin performed an excision at the middle cranial fossa for a vascular lesion. This procedure was completed in an intradural fashion with dural repair and graft. His partner, Dr. Sutter, performed an infratemporal approach with decompression of the auditory canal. How should Dr. Martin report her services?
    a. 61590, 61606-51
    b. 61606-62
    c. 61606
    d. 61601
    Hi, this question I found it from cpc 6000 series. The answer for this has been mentioned’c’. But there are two surgeons so, modifier 62 has to be used I think.
    Kindly Correct me if I’m wrong.

  2. It would be great if we can have more ICD-10 CM coding questions and ICD 10 CM guidelines questions posted along with practise management where most of them commit mistakes in opting right ans in short time

  3. I have a question in regard to 1995 E & M Guidelines and 1997 E & M Guidelines.

    M question has to do with the 1995 Expanded Problem Focused Exam as a Limited Exam being identified by 2-7 Organ Systems and the Detailed Extended Exam also being identified by 2-7 Organ Systems. What is the difference between the Limited Exam with 2-7 Organ Systems and a Detailed Exam with 2-7 Organ Systems?

    Would it be correct as an Orthopaedic Practice to bill a Detailed Level as an Extended Exam if our Organ Systems consisted of the following five Elements:
    Constitutional, Musculoskeletal, Skin, Neurologic, and Psychiatric Organ System Elements of an Exam?

    For Example: The patient is a well appearing, well-developed, well-nourished 41 year old male in no distress. General appearance is within normal limits. Mood and affect are appropriate. He is alert and oriented. His skin is grossly intact throughout. He has obvious incisional scars that are well healed. He has a 2+ effusion at and about the knee. He can extend to 0 degrees and flex to 100 degrees with pain. He does have a positive apprehension sign with mobility of her patella. He has intact plantar flexion, dorsiflexion, and EHL strength of his left lower extremity. He is able to perform a straight-leg raise. He has positive wiggle of all toes. His sensation is grossly intact throughout.

    If our example only consisted of Two Organ Systems, Musculoskeletal, and Skin, would it be correct to Audit this as a Detailed Level Extended Exam?

    His skin is grossly intact throughout. He has obvious incisional scars that are well healed. He has a 2+ effusion at and about the knee. He can extend to 0 degrees and flex to 100 degrees with pain. He does have a positive apprehension sign with mobility of his patella. He has intact plantar flexion, dorsiflexion, and EHL strength of his left lower extremity. He is able to perform a straight-leg raise. He has positive wiggle of all toes.

    Thank you for your help,
