Medicare pt makes appt for "physical". She comes in and refuses pelvic exam;
wants only "Medicare screening" breast exam; no problems. Can we charge
G0101 with documentation that patient refused exam. I guess this was a
freebie.

When it gets so bad you can't stand it, don't forget you can always hit the
seminar circuit as a highly paid speaker. It would grieve me, though; the
day to day grief in Medicine should not force out the GOOD guys!

I didn't say it nearly as well as you did, Dr. S. You have a WAY with the
King's English!!

Doc only did the requested breast exam. Didn't really do the rest of the
preventive since patient wanted only breast exam. She is a long time
patient (high maintenance and at times argumentive) who saw our new
physician. Oh well, lesson learned.......

G0101 requires at least 7 elements of the female exam. If you bill it with a
preventive E&M with a -52, she will appropriately be responsible to pay for
a non-covered screening.
