Title: Complete Exams and Office Visits
Post by: pgarcia on July 27, 2011, 10:46:12 AM
A young patient came in for a yearly physical.  He was diagnosed with Asthma.  The provider wants to charge a 99203 and a 99394 for the same visit.  Are we able to bill both?

You actually can.  You bill the portion of the visit that was spent on the asthma under the E&M code for office visit (99203 in your example) and the yearly physical as well.  Most insurances recognize both but all may not.
