    Default Preventive vs. Office Visit

    AAPC: Back to School

    I'm trying to find guidelines on physicians billing a preventive exam and a regular office visit on the same day. Scenario is that when patients call to say they want a well adult exam and they come in the physician also may diagnosis other things in the visit along side the V70.0. The physician will charge a preventive exam with the V70.0 and a office visit for the other diagnosis. Wouldn't this be part of the physical or can they actually bill in this manner. Your help is greatly appreciated.
