Diabetic patient comes in "to have their feet checked". Patient has no complaints, no neuropathy, no conditions that this provider is addressing, just the DM. Can this "diabetic foot exam" be billed with an e/m code or is this a preventive visit?

I'd sure appreciate some advice on this one. How about the podiatry coders out there? Do PCPs refer their DM patients to your providers to have their feet checked?
How do you bill it?
