This interactive score sheet was created as a tool to assist providers in selecting a code. It does not in any way replace the 1995 and 1997 E/M documentation guidelines published by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Use of this interactive score sheet is at the discretion of the provider and its usage does not grant the user any rights or impose any obligations on Novitas Solutions, Inc. or any of its affiliates.
Use of this interactive score sheet is with the understanding that any E/M code suggested is based upon the selections of the user and is offered without any warranty or guarantee of any kind.
It is the responsibility of the provider of services to ensure the correct submission of claims and responses to any remittance advice. Therefore, providers should refer to CMS' official documentation guidelines for final E/M code selection and to the American Medical Association's (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology ® manual to identify E/M codes that are based upon time.
