I know you cannot charge for an E/M visit for a screening colonoscopy with Medicare but what about other carriers. I am wanting to see what other offices are doing in this instance. I know some carriers will deny the claim for inconsistent coding. You cannot put a V code with an problematic E/M visit (e.g. V76.51 w/ 99203). BCBS will deny the claim but to the patient's responsibility stating preventative office visits are not covered. I would like to hear how other offices are handling the office visits prior to screening colonoscopies. Do you charge for them? Thanks for your help.
