Thread: office visit same day as Colonoscopy

    Default office visit same day as Colonoscopy

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have one of my docs that does not bring a patient in to the office for a consult/office visit before he schedules return colonoscopies, but he dictates a H/P on the same day as the procedure. Can we bill for this with a 25 modifier?Thanks in advance for your help!
