If a patient comes into the office with a laceration that does not require sutures but the wound was treated using steri strips can I charge the E/M and also use G0168?

No, G0168 is for tissue/skin adhesive (Dermabond) not Steri-strips. Wound closure using adhesive strips only is coded using an E/M code.
