I have a patient with dx V76.2. The chart was coded with CPT® 99212 and Q0091. I get billing edits stating CPT® not allowed with same date of service. what is correct? Is there a modifier that should be added?
E/M and Procedure on the same day
You can only bill the E/M if they were seen for some other reason then for the PAP smear.
a screening diagnosis needs a screening visit. You should code 9938x.
Thank you so much.
