Intelicode® keeps a "running tally". You will notice the code changing as your History, Exam, and Decision levels change.
NOTE: Depending on the CPT code, the "key components" required, and the documentation, you may not see a code even after completing the audit.
EXAMPLE: A Hospital Inpatient Services - Initial Hospital Care (codes 99221-99223) requires documentation in each of the three key components (History, Exam, and Medical Decision Making). A 99221 requires a Detailed and Comprehensive History, a Detailed or Comprehensive Examination, and a Straightforward or Low Complexity MDM. If you only document a Detailed History, an Expanded Exam, and a Straightforward MDM, for example, Intelicode will not give you a code.
