Just because correct coding allows you to provide a routine exam as well as address concerns brought up, does not mean that insurance companies realize this. Instead of fighting the insurance companies, have the patient come back to address the problems found during the routine exam. That way the insurance company cannot deny either. When a patient asks why they need to come back to address those issues, let them know that the insurance companies are not familiar with correct coding. When customers start complaining to the insurance companies, they will finally pay what they should but until then, it's best to avoid the situation. Just my two cents and I have had similar problems as well.
