Hello everyone:

I am new to the coding world and have a question as to how to correctly code and get paid for preventatitve annual gyn exams from medicare.

Do I use the code(s) 99396/99397 with the V72.31 or do I use the G0101/Q0091 codes with the V70.0????:confused: :confused:

Medicare does not pay for preventive codes, but they will pay for the screenings. So, you will still need to code the preventive, and the G and Q codes. Some use both V codes. Code the V codes pertaining to what was actually done.
