    Default Visit prior to a screening colonoscopy

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have experience with Medicare NGS in NY regarding reimbursement for the visit prior to a screening colonoscopy?

    Thank you,

    If the patient is scheduled for a screening colonoscopy, you may not charge for a visit prior to the study. Medicare has a transmittal and medlearn article on this.
