    Default E/M and scheduled procedure

    AAPC: Back to School
    Sounds like they came in a month ago and saw the Dr. The Dr. said come back in 1 month and we will do the scan. Then the patient returned in one month and the Dr. did the scan and also charged an E/M. If this scenario is correct, I do not believe he can charge the second E/M, just the scan.

    FINALLY! I get it! LOL... it WAS planned and scheduled a month in advance!
    sheesh! sorry about that... I thought they already had the scan done and was coming back in for follow up... my mistake!

    I agree with mbort and lphillips (due to my new found knowledge) they indeed are correct.

    (it only takes a house to fall sometimes)

    thanks to you too Anne ...
