    Default Guidelines to use v70.0

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good morning everyone,

    What is the ctiteria to use ICD 9 Dx code V70.0 (Routine health maintenance)

    1) Is it OK to use V70.0 with 992XX (E/M codes) or should I use only preventice codes (993XX)

    To use preventive codes how many R.O.S required?

    2) Patient has chronic conditions (DM/HTN etc.,) last seen in clinic was last year and now Physician use V70.0 with other chronic conditions with CPT code 99213. Please verify

    Thank you

    Have a nice weekend

    Default V70.0

    We used it only with preventative.

    Default When to use preventative codes

    Preventative codes are comprehensive services and should have a ROS for all. An office visit is problem focused so there should be a reason for the visit. What is the medically necessary reason for the visit?

    I have had tons of problems the other way, with providers thinking they can call a preventative exam a level 5 OV.
