We have always billed out the EKG along with the V70.0. (For non-Medicare patients). Some private payors pay it, some don't. If the patient also has a cardiac pre-existing condition that our office manages such as HTN 401.9, we would code that instead. For the venipuncture if you are using 36415, we also use the V70.0. Most insurances will pay a routine veni with a preventative exam. The hemoccult we also use V76.41 and it usually gets paid although some companies consider it bundled so at that point we just adjust it off.
