Blood Draw to Office Visit

The patient came in just for a blood draw but fainted at the sight of the blood (vasovagal syncope). PA was called to check up on the patient because of this and the PA did a physical exam. Can we bill an office visit for this encounter? We hope someone can help us on here as we couldn't find any information on the web. Thank you!

We have had this situation at our facility as well. In our cases, we have billed the patient and/or the patient's insurance carrier for the service which we provided to the patient. We are not under any hospital umbrella and are a multi-specialty practice if that makes any difference.
