Functional Limitation G Codes
In Touch EMR is set up to report Functional Limitation G Codes on to a patient claim, based on your functional limitation selections during the Objective documentation section.
The Objectve section will automatically load a Functional Limitation section to your custom template.
Step 1: To load your custom template, click on the template name within the Library.
Step 2: To report G Codes, select the Functional Limitation section from the menu.
Step 3: Choose your functional limitation from the drop down menu.
Based on your functional limitation selection, certain G Codes will report on your CMS 1500 Claim automatically for that particular patient encounter.
Complete the Supporting Evidence section, and click “Save” when you are done.

Progressive documentation and G Code reporting
In Touch EMR uses progressive documentation to help save you time while documenting a patient encounter. This means that previously entered data from subsequent evals or notes will appear when you start a new note for the same patient.
Functional G Codes are only required to be reported on every 10th visit or on a Re Evaluation.
To remove G codes from the billing tab when doing daily notes, go to the Objective section and deselect your choice from the Funcional Limitation tab. This will clear out the G codes. You will need to hit the “Refresh” button once you get back to the billing tab to refresh the screen
