Established patient visits all require 2 out of 3 of history, exam, medical decision making

History required is problem focused: 1-3 HPI elements

Exam required is problem focused: 1 body area/organ system examined from the 1995 exam, or one bullet from the multi-specialty exam or any single specialty exam from 1997

Straightforward MDM (one resolved problem, one minor problem)

See the articles on auditing and the Documentation Guidelines in Codapedia.
