Problems Addressed for New E/M Guidelines

April 1, 2021

Question:
Would bilateral recurrent acute otitis media, on a patient that will need tympanostomy tubes, count as 2 problems in the new E/M guidelines for office visits?

Answer:
No because these two problems will have the same concurrent treatment (tympanostomy tubes).   Therefore, it counts as 1 problem.

*This response is based on the best information available as of 4/1/21.
