I thought the same and responded to my doctors that breast exam does fallThe breast exam falls under V72.31-
True - most insurance carriers will only pay one per year regardless of V70.0 and V72.31. Also, as far as I know, only Medicare recognizes the G and Q codes...So when a pt comes in for Just for her Well Women exam (not Medicare) are you using 9921X and V72.31, V76.2 or G0101 and Q0091 and how are being reimbursed? We have this controversy because we will do the CPE 9938X and pt may go to another one of our docs for her Pap then what??
I am finding most ins will only pay for 1 preventive CPT code per 365 days and if we break it down in 2 visits they have exceeded their limit.??????
