If a patient comes into the office for a travel exam because they are going out of the country and need an exam before they go to get the immunizations, can this be considered a preventative visit? I say no because it really doesn't meet the criteria for a preventative vist meaning it is not comprehensive in nature. Shouldn't this be billed with the appropriate E/M office visit?

Also,

If the exam was comprehensive in nature, would it qualify for a preventative exam? Thanks.:)
