    Default Pacemaker check

    AAPC: Back to School
    Question: Can a PA who asked that a patient come in for a pacemaker check bill for an E/M service when there was no real HPI, ROS and the Exam was only constitutional and psychiatric. MDM was " normal dual-chamber device function, battery is "aging", will recheck in 3 months?? He billed a 99213.

    Thank you,

    Kris Felty, CPC

    In this case, looks like the P.A should just billed for the pacemaker check.
