emg and new patient

  1. Default emg and new patient
    Medical Coding Books
    I haven't really seen this come up in awhile and was wondering if anyone can find the policy for United health care on Billing an EMG/NCV on their first visit and then 3 days later seeing them as a New Patient. United Health care states that New Patient qualifications have been met and that this patient is Established. I know I have seen this somewhere before but can not for the life of me find it. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    This is the link to their policy online for Neurophysiologic testing. Maybe what you are looking for is in here?
