Thread: Health Maintenance Exam

  1. #1

    Default Health Maintenance Exam

    AAPC: Back to School
    This patient was referred by another physician to establish care. Under Assessment and plan it then states that the patient is there for a health maintenance exam. Would this be a new patient or a new patient preventative visit?
