    Default Preventive visit documentation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is this an acceptable documentation to bill for a separate Preventive Visit?
    Chief Complaint(s):
    Pt is here for annual PE as well as for sick visit for eval of reg medical problems ... see HPI .
    Clinic Visit
    Pt c/o burning sensation around his anus & into penis x's past 1 wk ... no d/c ... + burning on urination x's 1 wk as well ... this is a new problem with BM though "I do strain on passing BM" ... no F/S but + c/o chills occasionally x's past 6 months but no wt chages ...
    Flu shot given 10/3/09 ... H1N1 given @ work 12/09 ... PNA given 12/30/09 ... up-to-date with colonoscopy
    Start Bactrim DS Tablet, 800-160 MG, Orally, 6, 1 tab, twice a day, 3 day(s), Refills 0Lab:URINALYSIS, COMPLETE


    My question is this,if during the Preventive Visit there's no LAB ORDERED,no COUNSELING provided if it's still qualifies for a Preventive Visit?
