weight check for baby

    Default weight check for baby

    Do we bill 99211 for a well child weight check? What DX would we use, and do these get paid?

    Thumbs up

    99211 can be billed if only the weight readings are documented, and for the diagnosis V20.31 or V20.32 may be assigned based on how many days old the baby is.

    I hope this helps.
