Thread: G0121 Non Medicare Screen

  1. #1

    Default G0121 Non Medicare Screen

    AAPC: Back to School
    I've gotten conflicting information on using a G0121 for a non-Medicare patient when doing a screening. We have always use the 45378 and the screening dx. How is everyone else coding screenings for this patient population?

    non Medicare

    45378 screening dx

    If ( and I have not had this happen yet) a payor would ask for the G code then I would bill the G code for just that payor

    The practice I work for uses the G codes for everyone except UHC and Medicaid (surprisingly). They worked the codes into the contracts.
