    Default preventive visit and appending -52

    AAPC: Back to School
    Has anyone ever appended the -52 to a preventive visit? I read an article the other day that said if there is minimal history or ROS, to consider adding the -52 to the preventive.

    Per CR 1776... you cannot append the 52 modifier to an E&M code for any reason.
