    In the chart, the shaded headings list the organ systems and body areas as CPT categorizes them. An overview of the single-system exam requirements is available as a download Download in PDF format. Have you ever been diagnosed with a neurological condition that affected the use of your muscles? Look closely at the terms and the way they are grouped; they may not correspond exactly to those you are used to running through in your mind. Note the peculiar wording of the requirement for the comprehensive general multisystem exam: While the guidelines say explicitly that you must perform all the elements of the exam identified by bullets in the nine or more systems or body areas you examine, they require that you document only two per system or area.

    A comprehensive multisystem exam would pretty clearly be inappropriate given the clinical situation and chief complaint, but just by way of illustration, it would also require the physician to document at least two elements from four of the following additional body areas or organ systems to bring the total number of body areas or organ systems to nine: Eyes; Chest Breasts ; Gastrointestinal Abdomen ; Genitourinary; Lymphatic; Musculoskeletal; Skin; Neurologic; and Psychiatric.
