The Code V70.0 (Routine general medical examination at a health care facility Health checkup) is the ICD-9-CM Dx code and can be used with several of the preventive medicine and annual well visit CPT codes.
Medicare and other major payers generally allow the Routine general medical examination once every fiscal year.
