    Question Please help with cdl exam
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello! Does anyone know what the difference is in billing out a CDL examination from a regular preventive exam? I know they have different diagnosis codes, but someone once told me it's different when billing for one.
    Thank you!

    Is it a DOT Physical. If so Bill 99455 or 99456 and use DX code V70.5

    @ mariac, code 99455 doesn't sound right to me, since it states assessment services for insurance eligibility and work related DISABILITY. The patient is only getting an examination to get their commercial drivers license. I am still confused.
