HIV Counseling & screening


Best answers
My CNM does routine HIV Risk Assessments and screening along with risk factor counseling, approximately 15 minutes spent per patient, as a standard of care on all our pregnant women. I bill CPT 99401 with dx V65.44. Most carriers pay without problem but I have one that states the diagnosis code is not usually associated with this procedure. Does anyone else bill this and what codes are you using?
