    Default G0102 - Prostate cancer screening
    Medical Coding Books
    Good morning - I keep reading that G0102 is supposed to be covered for Medicare beneficiaries, but I have never been able to get it paid. How exactly does it have to be billed? Thanks!

    We use G0103 for Medicare Prostate screening with V76.44. If results are elevated, we use 84153 with 790.93. G0103 does get paid.

    I'm talking about the digital rectal exam, G0102, that is supposed to be one of the very few 'preventive' measures Medicare covers.

    We have found that G0102 is usually bundled into the E/M code and is not reimbursed separately, even if you use modifier 25 on the E/M.

    I hope this helps.

    We as well have found that it will deny when the E/M pays...
