    Question New at E&M. Help!

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a case that I am auditing, states pt. in office for upgrade BiV, and wound check. CC is CHF. Doc doing an upgrade BiV. There is enough documentation to bill an E/M service. I've been told if pt. scheduled for procedure only, not to bill for E/M service.

    You have been told correctly. If the patient comes in for a planned procedure, you do not code an E&M. If you were to code an E&M it would have to be totally separate from the procedure and from what you have stated, I would say definately not to coding an E&M.
