Thread: Screening Code W/O Procedure?

  1. #1

    Default Screening Code W/O Procedure?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can we use a screening code (in this case diabetes screening code) without actually performing a procedure? Normally we do a finger stick or serum blood glucose draw to obtain a result, but can we also use this V code if we determine through a series of questions that a patient is a risk? Hope I’m making sense..
