What we have done when this occurs is bill the first visit as a preventive visit, and then bill the ancillary services (labs for STD and pap smear) on the second visit with no E/M. I do not have any references, we just chalk it up to good patient care. Now, if the patient brought up additional issues, then we would charge an office visit as long as the issue is not included in a physical.
