Overuse of Z00.00

Tierni Posted Thu 04th of February, 2016 14:40:11 PM

I bill for a provider that uses the Z00.00 on every claim stating that the patient visit is Routine Health Maintenance. Can the Z00.00 be used all the time or is it a annual code only to be used for the annual exam?

Hi,

Z00.00 is used to code Routine annual exams for adults. Please refer to guidelines as it is an annual code.

Thanks
