    Default RX billing w/o visit

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can Medicare Patients be billed for misc. office fees, such as, prescription refills that are phoned or faxed in without an office visit. There is an office policy posted throughout the office and signed by patients, stating there is a fee for prescriptions not taken care of at the time of visits.

    No they cannot, the work included in this is considered included in any E&M performed.
