Additional Information
36415

  • Only counted as preventive when used with a preventive lab

99401-99404

  • Only used when a preventive service, normally included in another service, is performed by itself (e.g., breastfeeding counseling, obesity screening and counseling, skin cancer prevention).
  • Modifier 33 is not required as the CPT codes themselves indicate they are for preventive services.
  • Not covered by Medicare

99201-99215

  • Only for use when there is no code that is more appropriate or that covers the service provided.
  • Modifier 33 needs to be added as these codes are not specified as preventive alone, and clear documentation showing the preventive service provided that doesn’t support a different, more appropriate code.
  • When preventive services are provided on the same day or encounter as medical services they can be included in the visit code, but can be billed separately in some cases. If you decide to bill them separately there must be clear documentation that both services were extensive enough to warrant payment for both.

99381-99397

  • Not covered by Medicare
  • Where appropriate, consider using an annual wellness visit code instead (HCPCS G0438-G0439).

90461-90461, 90471-90472
Must be coded with the vaccine(s) administered
