    Default E/M code for Pre-Op visit

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient comes in for a pre-op visit. My doc is not a surgeon and will not be performing the surgery. What code set do we use for the E/M in this situation? Thanks for your help!

    You would use 99201-99215 depending on new or established E&M.

    Hope this helps,
