A self pay patient came in for her a general physical and had lab work done etc. Then in two weeks she came in requesting a WWE. Is it appropriate to charge her the full amount of two preventive visits?

Did she schedule the Well Woman visit after she had the physical? If so then the codes would be the 9939x or 9938x for the physical with a modifier -52 attached and then you can bill the well woman as an office visit like a 99213 w/ v72.31 as a dx. The doctor who gave the physical would also need to dictate that they could not do the well woman or the patient requested a female doctor to do a well woman at a later date.
