Welcome to Coffee with the Coder®, our conversation with Paula Digby and her team to address issues, observations and questions for Health Information Management professionals, physicians, auditors, payors and students. You are invited to listen in for ten to twenty minutes every other Monday and to submit your favorite questions or comments for Coffee with the Coder®

Today, in Episode 63, Paula Digby describes allergy testing and desensitization reporting in CPT and then discusses an inpatient rehabilitation case with suspected spinal cord infarct. The last question involves a patient who witnessed others being abused, how can that be reported? This document is referenced in the first question: https://downloads.cms.gov/medicare-coverage-database/lcd_attachments/34597_9/L34597_ALRG001_BCG.pdf
