Thread: Welcome to Medicare Exam

    Default Welcome to Medicare Exam

    If I understand correctly, the Medicare guidelines do not have a specific ICD-9 code requirement for the Welcome to Medicare exam. I'm curious what others are using for the dx code and is it getting paid? Are you using V70.0?

    You're correct. Typically we use V70.0 for the G04** series.
