    Default Prev med vs. E/M

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have a documentation as to if an OB/GYN is doing a yearly pap smear, breast and pelvic exam as to if services should be coded as Prev Med. or E/M. Basically can a OB/GYN have a full prev exam if they are doing the breast, pelvic and pap?

    You should use the preventative medicine codes based on age of patient. For Medicare you should bill the G0101 and Q0091.
