I have a provider asking if you can you bill a depression screen G0444 and an Annual wellness exam (G0438-G0439) together? Or is the depression screen bundled with AWV?

Thank you for your response! I have a come across that reference guide and I have also checked the NCCI but there is no clear yes or no answer!
My thinking is that during an Inital Annual Wellness Exam there are 2 questions that pertain to the depression screen, so in my logic I am thinking G0444 and G0438 would be bundled. But for G0439 since that is the subsequent visit it would only be an update to the previous year so then you would be able to code G0444+ G0439 (subsquent visit)
