How many of you offer "Meet the Doctor" appointments for families new
to the office?
Right now we are not billing for this appointment. This impacts
available sick appointments for the day and the bottom line.
At the least, CAN we bill for these appointments?
Can we bill if the baby is not born yet and the parents are just
interviewing? CPT talks about consultation with the family and/or
patient. Is a family a family if the patient is not born yet, or
does family start with the patient's birth?
What is the CPT and ICD9 for a "meet the doctor"? (baby born or unborn).
