    Is it mandatory to include all other dx 56210,4556 when billing G0121,V7651?

    Not sure what you are asking but when you are coding/billing for screening of any kind the screening V code is the first-listed code always. Any other dx not associated with the screening may be listed but do not link to the screening procedure code.

    Default Correct Coding

    Scenerio: V7651,56210,4556, cpt G0121, I have been billing G0121,V7651 leaving the other dx off the claim form
    Is this correct coding?
    Also is this the appropriate use of modifiers for this scenerio? Please advise.:
    Thank you for your assistance.
