Medicare wellness G0438

  1. Default Medicare wellness G0438

    Does anyone know what ICD9 code to use when billing the new Medicare wellness code
    G0438? I have tried V70.0 and that denied saying to bill the patient since it is a preventative service. Should we be using the patients chronic problem ICD9 codes?

    No official word from CMS other than don't use V70.0. We have been advised to hold these claims until 4/4/11.

    I received our first payments for this code today. I used the V70.0 and everything went through fine.

    Per CMS, V70.0 should be paying now.
