    Default mChat Screening Procedure Coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    When coding a developmental screening, along with an mChat screening, is it appropriate to bill 96110 x2, 96110 x1, or another combination of codes for the separate tests?

    We only charge 96110 once. Even if we do the mchat and peds at same ROV.

    We code 96110 for the developmental screening tool (we use ASQ) and 99420 for the MCHAT.
