    Medical Coding Books
    We are located in the state of Michigan. We have been trying to determine which payor's if any consider a UA with a medical diagnosis when billed with a E/M or a Consult. From what we have seen they are inclusive to the E/M service. Can someone shead some light on this matter.

    Thank you~

    This is on an individual payer basis. Some of the larger commercial insurance carriers began including the dipstick UA in the fee for the E/M service provided on the same date of service.
