  • 2. 

    An established patient returns to the physician's office for follow-up on his hypertension and diabetes. The physician takes the blood pressure and references the patient's last three glucose tests. The patient is still running above normal glucose levels, so the physician decides to adjust the patient's insulin. An expanded history was taken and a physical examination was performed.

    • A.

      99213

    • B.

      99232

      99214

    Correct Answer
    A. 99213
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 99213. This code represents an established patient visit where the physician takes the blood pressure, references the patient's last three glucose tests, adjusts the patient's insulin, and performs an expanded history and physical examination. The other options do not accurately reflect the level of complexity and work involved in this visit.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Patient arrives in the emergency room via a medical helicopter. The patient has sustained multiple life-threatening injuries due to a multiple car accident. The patient goes into cardiac arrest 10 minutes after arrival. An hour and 30 minutes of critical care time is spent trying to stabilize the patient.

    Correct Answer
    B. 99291; 99292
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 99291; 99292. This is because the patient arrives in the emergency room with life-threatening injuries and goes into cardiac arrest shortly after. The critical care time spent trying to stabilize the patient for an hour and 30 minutes qualifies for both codes 99291 and 99292, which represent prolonged services in critical care.

    Correct Answer
    D. 99291
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 99291 because this code represents the provision of critical care services in the emergency department for a patient in respiratory failure. The doctor spent an hour and 10 minutes providing critical care for this patient, which meets the criteria for reporting code 99291. The other codes (99281, 99292, and 94002) do not accurately describe the level of care provided or the specific circumstances of the patient's condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Services were provided to a patient in the emergency room after the patient twisted her ankle stepping down from a curb.

    C. 99281
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 99281 because this code is used for an emergency room visit where a problem-focused history and physical examination were performed, and ankle strapping was applied. The patient did not require extensive medical decision-making or high complexity care, which would warrant a higher-level code. The other options (99201, 99282, 99211) do not accurately reflect the level of care provided in this scenario.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    An established patient was seen in her primary physician's office. The patient fell at home and came to the physician's office for an examination.

    • D.

      72126

    Correct Answer
    B. 72142
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 72142. This code represents an MRI of the cervical spine without contrast. Since the patient is status post automobile accident, it is important to evaluate the cervical spine for any potential injuries or abnormalities. However, in this case, the MRI is performed without contrast, which means that no dye or contrast agent is used to enhance the visibility of certain structures or abnormalities. This code accurately describes the procedure performed in this scenario.

    Correct Answer
    D. 25246; 73115
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 25246; 73115. The patient is complaining of wrist pain and the physician decides to perform an arthrography, which is a procedure used to diagnose joint problems. The injection given by the physician is likely a contrast agent that will be used during the arthrography. The code 73115 represents the arthrography procedure itself, while 25246 represents the injection of contrast agent. Therefore, both codes are necessary to accurately code the complete procedure.

    Correct Answer
    D. 77055, 77051
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 77055, 77051. This answer is correct because it includes both codes necessary for a unilateral mammogram with computer-aided detection and further physician review and interpretation.

    Correct Answer
    A. 99195
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 99195. In this scenario, the patient with hematochromatosis underwent a therapeutic phlebotomy, which involves the removal of blood to reduce the iron overload in the body. The code 99195 specifically represents a phlebotomy performed on an outpatient basis, making it the most appropriate choice in this case. The other options (36522, 36514, 99199) do not accurately describe the procedure or the setting in which it was performed.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is 92928-LD; 92920-RC. This answer indicates that the physician performed a PTCA with drug-eluting stent placement in the left anterior descending artery (LAD) and angioplasty only in the right coronary artery (RCA). The codes 92928-LD and 92920-RC specifically represent these procedures, with LD indicating the LAD and RC indicating the RCA.

    Correct Answer
    D. 93312
    Explanation
    The correct answer, 93312, refers to the performance and interpretation of a transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) procedure. TEE involves inserting a probe into the esophagus to obtain detailed images of the heart and surrounding structures. The procedure provides valuable information about the structure and function of the heart, allowing for the diagnosis and monitoring of various cardiac conditions. The code 93312 includes both the placement of the probe and the interpretation and reporting of the images obtained during the procedure.

    The correct answer is 98926. This code represents osteopathic manipulative treatment to three body regions. Osteopathic manipulative treatment is a hands-on approach used by osteopathic physicians to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. In this case, the treatment is focused on three specific body regions. The other codes listed (98941, 97110, 97012) are not relevant to osteopathic manipulative treatment or do not specify the number of body regions being treated.

    Correct Answer
    C. 11044
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 11044 because this code represents the debridement of a full-thickness skin and subcutaneous tissue ulcer. The patient's ulcer was debrided down to the bone, which indicates a deep tissue ulcer. The other codes listed do not accurately represent the depth of the ulcer or the extent of the debridement.
