As I am new at this not sure which code to use for a person coming into a clinic for their annual physical. In CPT this would fall within: new patient or existing and the age of pt. So I can either choose as example 99382 or V20.2 Which one would the more correct???
also if who answers me. I've come accross wording in the V codes that states: acquired absense of organ V45.7, what does acquired absense mean? Thank you
