    Default Suicide Screening/Questioniare

    AAPC: Back to School
    Anyone billing for a teen suicide screening/questionaire? If so, what CPT code are you using? Are you seeing reimbursements? Denials?

    Any input is appreciated!

    have you looked at 99420? It's non-covered for MCare but since you're Pedi doesn't really matter

    Would have to use Mod -25 on your E&M
    Dont know what or if any payer would pay separate
    Dont know if it is accurate for what your provider is doing

    99420---Administration and interpretation of health risk assessment instrument

    Have you looked at prolonged physician service without direct patient contact (99358-99359)?
