Wiki Yearly Physical Labs


Best answers
At my facility, I have a couple providers who like to order their yearly physical labs the week before the physical, so they can review them at the physical. However, there are no diagnoses that would necessarily cover these labs. The patients have no medical issues that I could use and the only code I can find for physical labs is the Z00.00, which is the same code I use for the physical on a different date of service. I have had an occasional insurance company who doesn't like using this code twice, since it is meant for yearly physicals. Does anyone have another option or idea on what else we could use? Thank you.
