    Default Help with cpt Codes 17000-17111

    AAPC: Back to School

    You can if you have a significant separaately identifiable evaluation and management but you would need mod 25 on the ov.

    Yes you can but documentation must support a significant and separate identifiable service apart from routine pre and post service work included in the 17000-17111. So, in short if the patient is just coming in for the procedure, no, I would not report an E/M. If there was a significant e/m done in addition to the procedure then you can report the appropriate e/m supported by documentation with a 25 modifier. Remember that there is a basic E/M (routine pre and post work) built into the RVU's for all procedures.

    Hope that helps!
