During the “Insiders” portion of Episode 131, Paula and Pam give ways to win in our 5th Birthday Bash. Listen to the replay and send in your replies before midnight December 24, 2021.  During the live call Ms Digby addresses how much detail is needed to meet moderate complexity in an E&M visit? Does the phrase “continue medication” meet this requirement? Later Ms Digby speaks to correct reporting of Unspecified Neuromuscular Disorder as an Etiologic Diagnosis.
