Problems Addressed for New E/M Guidelines

March 4, 2021

Question:
Would bilateral L4-L5 herniated discs count as 2 problems in the new E/M guidelines for office visits?

Answer:
No because these two problems are at the same spinal level and are treated with the same procedure (discectomy). Therefore, it counts as 1 problem.

*This response is based on the best information available as of 3/4/21.
