Hi,

I'm wondering how everyone is coding for biometric testing? The lab tests themselves are screenings but would you charge an ov? And if so, what diagnosis code would you use for that?

But what CPT code would you use for the biometric screening apt? 99381-99397 series? or maybe 99420? I don't think it should be a regular office visit because it's more of a preventive service.

Biometric CPT

I am wondering if anyone has been able to get paid for these screenings. We, too, are having patients schedule regular office visits for biometric screenings. The only codes to use are V codes for screening, but what CPT code to use? We have seen several of these this week.

Biometric Screenings

This is what I found for UHC.

Screenings are considered preventive care and are covered
at 100%, at not cost to you, so please remind your
physician to use a preventive care code when submitting
the bill so there is no charge.
