    Hello all,
    Need help to code biometric visits, where patient brings special form to complete, which requires vital sign and lab results. What icd-9 and cpt will you use?
    I am thinking 99211 and V72.85. Any other suggestions, please?
    Thanks

    Look at 96150 or 96152 for the CPT. Is this for an employer program?

    I think the one you had is probably the best. V72.85

  5. Exclamation my opinion
    I have gone thru the opinion, but I have different view.

    Since Biometric screening is performed for corporate wellness, in another word for employer. V72.85 (other special screening) I would suggest to use V70.5 (which includes Occupational Health examinations)

    So I would recomend to use V70.5

    If anyother view, please share.

    If there is no physical exam performed, my suggestion is to code Biometric Screening with CPT 99401 and ICD 9 V70.0.
