    Default INH Therapy/Preventive medicine

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have been trying to decide if once a patient has tested positive by the TB skin test and INH is initiated, is this coded as preventive medicine or office E/M?

    I always code these visits with the appropriate E/M because there is a chief complaint and evaluation and management of the complaint is taking place.
