    Unhappy DOT mandated physical HELP!

    How do I code this physical and the paperwork that needs to be filled out for the DOT? Its preventative services right? He is 68 years old, so 99397? How do I code the forms that the Dr. has to fill out?

    We always used the age specific preventive codes with a 32 modifier for mandated service and billed it to the employer most of the time. Om occaision we were instucted to bill the insurane but we were paid when we appended the 32 modifier.
