I'd like to add v82.89 to Brandi Tadlock's ICD choice v70.3.Can anyone help me I need an appropriate dx code for the screening of tobacco use that insurance co requires? Thanks for any help I can get.
99406 shouldn't require a modifier to pay separately, but 59 wouldn't be appropriate, anyways. 99406 is from the Counseling Risk Factor Reduction and Behavior Change Intervention section, which says "They are distinct from other E/M services that may be reported separately when performed."Why are you putting a 59 modifier on 99406 an E/M code?
