E/M: Prescription Drug Management Defined

Terry tackles a challenging topic in the appropriate documentation of prescription drug management when reporting moderate level E/M codes.

In this edition of the CodeCast, Terry breaks down the definition of PDM and how to support this part of an encounter to receive credit for it.
