Thread: height and weight check

    Red face height and weight check

    AAPC: Back to School
    If pt comes in for only height and weight check, do you code V20.2? Or is there other code to use.

    Thank You all

    Yes, we code it with thte V20.2 - we usually no charge the E/M if it's just a a ht/wt check (which they usually do in the first week or two of being born)
    {that's my opinion on the posted matter}
