Shelby presents today for follow-up of chronic migraines without aura. Since her last visit three months ago, she reports only one migraine day. She used abortive Imitrex with good response. She has no other neurological complaints today. Since she has had such good response with the preventive and abortive therapy, we will continue current management. Refills were provided today. She will return for migraine follow-up in six months. Of course, she can be seen sooner if needed.

Using the 2021 MDM table, what level of office visit should be reported for this visit?
A. 99212
B. 99213
C. 99214
D. 99215
