    Default Another well child visit.

    AAPC: Back to School
    If the documentation for a well child visit is all there. But also a quick notation at the bottom of the progress note. Like this.

    Assement says: Well visit, Otitis Media

    Plan: Anticipatory Guidance
    Prescription Amoxicillin for 7 to 10 days.

    Would and could you squeeze an an E/M 99212 for the otitis media.

    Meaning your visit would look like this.

    99392. V20.2

    Let me know your input.

    thank you

    I would say if there is enough documentation to support that there was additional services provided outside of the well exam then yes, since it is for an illness and not an integral part of a well exam.

    No - not if that is the extent of the documentation to support 99212.
