We saw a child for "incision and drainage", the patient returned 10 days later for a well-child exam, the insurance company is refusing to pay for the well-child exam, stating its "bundled" with the previous visit. We have tried using modifer 79, they denied this stating inappropriate modifer. Is there another modifer we should be using? Any help would be appreciated.

Please bill "Well Child Visit" with modifier 24
