Is Coumadin or Heparin considered a "drug requiring intensive monitoring for toxicity" under the Table of Risk?

Coumadin (any setting) and Heparin (hospital setting only) are considered high risk (Drug Therapy Requiring Intensive Monitoring for Toxicity). The provider would need documentation that supports he/she is involved in the management of this medication. To consider therapy with one of these drugs as a high risk management option, we would expect to see documentation in the medical record of drug levels obtained at appropriate intervals.
