I think all of these are face-to-face care. They why do you bill 99358?
Secondly, if you bill any preventive E/M for visits to your wellness studio or not?
For individual therapeutic services you can bill the service as provided. It is not clear how you bill for preventive services. Do you also bill preventive E/M?
