During the “Insiders” portion of episode 130, Heather Bryans encourages us toward self care, especially in the light of all the additional stressors we’ve felt as humans since the shutdown.  During the live call Ms Bryans turns our attention to surgery as she answers Ida’s question about Z53.09 and explains more about modifier -54 to Donna and to us. Finally, she addresses the giving of an injection during an Office Visit – does that count as med management for the E&M level?
