How do I bill for well-child preventive visits?

Step 1: Confirm that your services qualify as a preventive visit

By definition, a preventive visit is an initial or periodic comprehensive preventive medicine evaluation and management
(E/M), including:

** Age and gender appropriate history

** Examination

** Counseling/anticipatory guidance/risk factor reduction interventions

**Ordering of any necessary laboratory/diagnostic procedures

Step 2: Determine if your patient is a new or established patient Will my patient have any out-of-pocket cost*

Generally, no. All the above E/M codes, when accompanied by an appropriate diagnostic routine child health check code (Z00.xxx) are covered at 100 percent for patients with plan benefits that provide full coverage for preventive care.

However, if you bill an additional office visit code (for example, 15 minute expanded problem visit code 99213 with modifier 25), this is NOT considered a preventive service, and may be subject to deductibles, copays or coinsurance.

What about childhood immunizations?

Routine childhood immunizations recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices are considered preventive services and are covered at 100 percent. Go to cdc.gov for more information.

However, if an associated problem-based office visit is billed, this is NOT considered a preventive service, and may be subject to deductibles, copays or coinsurance.How do I bill for adult preventive visits*
