Can you count a full ROS for any of  CPT 99221-99223 when the doc documented a  few ROS reviewed in HPI .  The rest were not able to obtain, due to patient intubated.
thank you

typically you don't count any elememts of history when patient is intubated. They are given credit for a complete history when its documented that history can't be obtained due to intubation.

Some auditing programs will do this for you and only count elements from exam and MDM.
