I have come across the Primary Care doctor I do charge entry has started using CPT Code 90610 along with the Annual E/M visit for children under 18. Is this acceptable I have only ever seen this code used for Medicare patients with their Annual Wellness? If someone could assist please? Thanks

Depending on the age of the wellness exam for pediatric patients under 18 we use 96160 when we do a depression screening on the patient, 96161 for a maternal depression screening or 96110 when a we do a developmental screening such as the MCHAT. You may want to check with your payers as they require certain forms/formatting for these screenings. Look up the Bright Futures Guidelines thru the American Academy of Pediatrics.
