Our Pediatrician had a child 3 years old, brought in to see doctor to establish with the practice. Unfortunately the child would not allow a complete exam, so doctor was not able to charge for a new patient exam. Another coder has said that if the doctor dictated the patient would not allow exam and named the body area's he tried to examine and could not due to uncooperative patient, then he can count these toward exam. I have never heard of this, but I have never coded for pediatrics. Any feedback would be appreciated.
