    Do you keep from double counting individuals, for example, I have a community screening with multiple screening services, and the same person gets screened at each statement. Do you just count the all them as one screening? I’ve been challenged on that, and would like some input from what others are doing. Thanks

    We feel your pain !! We resolved by setting up several different screenings as activities. ie Screening – BP, Screening- BP, Gluc, Cholesterol, Screening – Gluc. A bit cumbersome, but it was the only way that we could avoid double counting for the same event.

    We also count this as one screening, rather than multiples, if done during the same visit/encounter.

    We do a grouping…If it is a blood draw regardless of the type or number of tests. It is one. If they get weight and height and BMI, Body composition, all of that is counted as one. If the person had both blood draw and the measurements…we count it BOTH times.
