    Can anyone tell me if we can bill an o/v for a pt who is a minor and had lab results, but he is not here to discuss the results it is his mother that is here for visit. I found a 90887 code that i believe is correct, but i am unsure... Any help would be greatly appreciated!! TXS

    Generally speaking you cannot bill an OV to charge to report lab results unless that result indicates a new dx or a change in tx plan. If that is the case then since this is a minor and the parent is the legal guardian you may charge an OV.
