Inclement Weatherminisurvey
Palmetto GBA's offices will be open on Monday October 5, 2015. While our offices will be open, many of our associates have been impacted by the inclement weather affecting the state of South Carolina which has been declared a State of Emergency. Unfortunately, this could limit the availability of the Provider Contact Center (PCC) to answer your calls due to staffing. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you. Thank you.

Railroad Medicare
When using the 1995 E/M guidelines, can you add body areas and organ systems together to determine the appropriate level for the examination component?

No. For the exam component, you may either use body areas or organ systems. You cannot combine both examinations to determine the appropriate level.
