Welcome to Medicare "FREE EXAMS"

  1. Default Welcome to Medicare "FREE EXAMS"
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello,
    I was wondering if there is a specific way to code a Welcome to Medicare Exam. We have many patients that receive the welcome to medicare booklet which states that they get a free welcome to medicare exam. My offices have been billing office visits and it has been going to their deductibles, hence not "free." Please advise. thanks!!!!

    It's called the IPPE...try this link - http://www.cms.hhs.gov/home/outreacheducation.asp
    search for IPPE and it should tell you how to code and what the requirements are. It's a lot of work for about $100.
    If the link doesn't work, it's the Medicare Learning Network.
