    Smile preventitive checklist by age

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi all, I would really appreciate some help trying to locate information on what the annual wellness exam should include by age and gender. I've been to CDC, special taskforce web page, etc. I'm trying to find out what the recommendations are by age and gender for the preventivie care codes. I'm new to family practice and when entering charges I sometimes have just the one code for a say 50 year old woman and it seems like there should be an EKG, labs ordered or something else.

    Any and all guidance is sincerely appreciated! Thanks gwen

    Default wellness screenings

    I use this site for the National standards for prevention screenings based on age and gender.
    Additionally, I generally use this site from AAPC for pediatric screenings. http://practice.aap.org/content.aspx?aid=1599
    Hope this helps.
