The 2nd line billed the Q code which is ok, they also attached a 25 modifier to 99386. The 3rd line billed a 99213 - Established Patient - Office or other outpatient visit, attached a modifier 25 to this code as well. ANSWER

Suppose the patient seeks out Dr. B at another practice to go to when they experience delayed healing.... would it still be coded S42.271G even though it was the initial visit for that doctor? ANSWER
