Hi Lisa -
Our DOT's are charged at a "lower" rate than say the 99397 - sometimes our providers use the preventive E/M's other times they use the Office Visit E/M's - either way, "internally" they are lowered -our DOT exams (and paperwork completed) are $120.00 and we use the V70.5 dx code. We do have a contract with our local firefighters and bus drivers - their DOT exams are even lower - at $70.00. Typically, they aren't as detailed as a regular physical, there is some paperwork involved - and usually just a urine test. (though our firefighters do get a chest xray also).
our DOT's are lower than our normal preventive service or office visit E/M.
(I wouldn't like paying the $200.00 either!) I would talk to somebody about fixing a lower rate for DOT exams. ...
