We are an orthopedic office and do a lot of joint injections. My understanding is if there is patient risk because of health, this would be counted towards Moderate in the risk table.

I would think yes........I think the injections would count as "medication management" too BUT I could be wrong on that.............these new guidelines aren't as "clear" as the AMA thinks they are....it's really frustrating.
