Do you charge for screenings for anxiety and depression (96127X2) if they are done during every psych visit (99202-99205 or 99212-99215)? I feel that these would be part of the E/M since they are done on every patient in the psych clinic, but I was wondering what views others had.

That's a good questionn. It seems to me that each session after the first one would be like a follow-up? They are done on every session, only to see the results of the previous one and to evaluate what to do next right?

So if a patient is diagnosed with depression and we are doing the PHQ-9 as a guide to see how the medication is working, we are able to use the 96127 with the depression diagnosis up to 4 times per year?
