    Default digital rectal exam

    AAPC: Back to School
    Are digital rectal exams performed on women as part of a medical exam covered by Medicare?

    Default digital rectal exams on women

    Unfortunately MCR is only paying seperately for DRE's on male pts. I attached a link for a quick reference sheet I found on MCR's website. Oh, and they aren't paying for the 82272 anymore either, you have to send the cards home with the pt.


    Hope this helps.
