First of alll, specifically for Medicare, if you code both a problem oriented visit and a preventive, you MUST carve out the fee. For example, if your fee for 99397 is $200 and your fee for 99213 is $100, then you must subtract 99213 from 99397 so that the total charge is no higher than your fee for 99397. Therefore, your patient is only responsible for $100 for 99397.
The preferred method is two separate notes, but a good auditor will be able to pull the problem oriented from the preventive.
