FAQ icd 10 code for g0442 and g0444
Can g0444 and g0442 be billed together?
Jan 29, 2020 #1 In 2019, G0444 and G0442 could be billed together with G0439 (with proper documentation and modifiers). Now, in 2020, there is a CCI edit that states code G0444 is column 2 code for G0442 and you cannot override it.
Can you override CCI code g0444 in 2020?
Now, in 2020, there is a CCI edit that states code G0444 is column 2 code for G0442 and you cannot override it. Has anyone else encountered this? If so, can you please share documentation to support this change? Thank you. I’m seeing this also!! But I can’t find ANYTHING that says why this changed.
Is depression screening included in the g0444?
The G0444 is being paid by Medicare. We are being reimbursed for it. It should be done with the annual wellness visit. I apologize it is not reimbursed with the G0402 or G0438, only the G0439. The Depression screening is bundled and included in the charges for G0402 and G0438.
Should I use AWE code g0439 or g0444?
If you have no medical issues that need to be addressed, then use your AWE. So long as the code is G0439, then you can also do G0444. If you DO have a medical issue that you’d like evaluated, then don’t waste your AWE as the visit should be coded using an office visit charge.
