    Cool Preventive and 99173

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello everyone,
    Does anyone know if Anthem will covered for a well child exam and also an audiometry test (92552) and Vision Acuity 99173 If I append a mod 25? Or do they considered these test incidental to the preventive?

    Well, I am not 100% sure... I believe that that would be considered an unbundling of the services for a WellCare check. For example, when I do a sports physical or a DOT physical, I do not code or charge the vision or hearing checks separately. Hope this helps!
