Evaluation and Management (E/M)
What are the seven components of E/M services used in defining the levels of E/M services?
The first three components (history, examination and medical decision making) are the key components most often used to select the level of E/M services. An exception to this rule is the case of visits which consist predominantly of counseling or coordination of care and time is the key or controlling factor to qualify for a particular level of E/M service.
