    When billing Q0091 and/or G0101 to Medicare with dx V15.89 (high risk) do we still get the pt's signature on the ABN?

    I would. These are still screening codes and if Medicare does an audit and determines the "high risk" not to meet their criteria, they can come back and deny a claim. The only way you would be able to bill the patient is if you had a signed ABN on file.
