Need some guidence on this code.
Is it possible to bill a 99213 with a 99401 if the only reason for visit is a weight check ?
heres the example

99213
R63.3 - FTT
Z68.52 - BMI
Z71.3 - dietary counseling W/ 99401
Z71.89 - other specified counseling

Do you think the insurance carriers will pay both codes ?
or only one because its the only reason for visit ?
any guidance is appreciated

Since the weight check is for a kid you can give Z00.129 (if no abnormal finding)
Was there some counseling too, or just a weight check? Is there some diagnosis also?
