The mini-cog and Fall risk assessment is included in the AWV so you would not be able to bill separately for it.

We have a PCP trying to bill for TUG assessment does anyone know which code we'd use?
thanks Katie CPC,COC

Hi Katie,

Is the provider only performing the TUG assessment or is this in additional to another code (E/M, AWV, etc.).

I did find a couple different suggestions for what could include a TUG assessment, and depending on your answer, TUG could be bundled into another code.
