Mr. Mark Segal
Dear Mr. Segal:
I have been told that in a conversation today with Kathryn Serkes, you stated that the new E & M Documentation Guidelines will not constitute regulations and will have no legal force or effect.
Please let me know immediately in writing if my understanding is incorrect, because I intend to disseminate this information to others soon.
Jane M. Orient, M.D.
