Thread: Genetic Counseling

    Question Genetic Counseling

    AAPC: Back to School
    I hope someone is able to help me. I am new to OB/GYN coding and one of the physicians does genetic counseling. The way I read this is if the patient has some signs or symptoms then I would use the OV 99212-99215 but if just for counseling then it would be the 99401 series. Can someone please steer me in the right direction. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I was searching this site for the same information and found your post. Based on the research that I have done, I am in agreement with your understanding of how to report "genetic counseling". It's always nice when you find someone who has the same interpretation.
