Can you support the 99215 with a time statement for reviewing chronic conditions if the provider uses a time statement? Below is the time statement being used in the medical record;

Greater than 50% of the total time spent with this patient was spent in face-to-face counseling regarding above diagnoses, recommendations, plan, annual exam, review of health maintenance recommendations, separate complex medical problems, discussion, recommendations, plan. Complex patient management. Total time spent 60 minutes.'

Possiblyy, but given the time involved in the OV and the annual, does documentation truly support approx 2 hours spent with one patient?

Remember none of the elements of the ov can be used For the annual visit.
