Example 1:

Medicaid does not pay for 99173 and 92551 but you must bill for these services in order to meet the requirement for an EPSDT. And you also must use DX code V20.2.

Example 2:

Medicaid will only pay for one service per day. You can bill the physical or the E/M visit but they will not pay for both even with a modifier.

I agree w/Jacqueline on Example 1

BUT

Example 2--Our State Medicaid pays for both (9939_ + 9921_(25)) when we billed 9939_ with different DX than 9921_ (25) also modifer on E/M code..
Scenerio--Pt scheduled for preventive visit on date of service and when pt arrives he has a "by the way" problem ....This is a good reason to bill both.

Hope this helps...
