New Patient Preventative Visit & E/M

  1. Default New Patient Preventative Visit & E/M
    Exam Training Packages
    When providing a new patient with a preventative exam and then also seeing that patient for an unrelated problem, is it appropriate to use a new or established patient E/M code during the same visit?

    You will use the New pt preventive code and an established pt code for the additional E/M service. Once you have done the preventive exam they are no longer a new patient.
