Dermatology E/M Level

    Hi,

    Are there any dermatology experts that can help me. I have a patient stating that her visit should have been billed as a preventive exam. I dispute this because there are no preventative exams in derm because its a specialty and the patient came in for moles in which the physician billed a 99214. Am I correct in this case?

    Thanks,

    I'd say that is correct, though 99214 seems a bit high just for moles.
