G0438 & g0439

  1. Default G0438 & g0439
    Medical Coding Books
    Would someone please clarify if these codes include a physical exam.

    Here is a nice link that details the requirements of the Annual Wellness Visit. Aside from basic vitals and a waist measurement to calculate BMI, there aren't any other physical exam elements. I think the answer you are looking for is on page 6 of the checklist.
