New pt-Physical and WWE in separate visits

Suhel Posted Fri 03rd of August, 2012 15:12:46 PM

My doctor did a complete physical on a new pt who will be coming back for a WWE in 2 weeks. If I use the dx code V70.0 for the first visit, then it would be a preventive visit and then on her second visit to our office for the WWE, I will not be able to bill a preventive visit again. In such situations, how should i bill the first visit?
Thanks for your help in advance

Is this for a Medicare patient? Was it the IPPE?
