Counting” Data for 2021 Office E/M Codes

Counting” Data for 2021 Office E/M Codes

June 24, 2021

Question:
I am confused about the Data component for the new office visit guidelines. Many of my new patients will bring in their x-rays or CT reports when referred for pain management. What do I get credit for when a patient brings in an x-ray or CT report I review?

Answer:
Good question. Assuming you (or your same specialty partner) did not order or bill for the x-ray or CT, you would receive Category 1 Data credit for reviewing the report.
