patient receives bill for physical (established patient with numerous diiagnoses) billed under the physician name and number.  No covered by insurance ......v code for annual physical...
Numerous systems addressed for ongoing illness.

Insurance denied payment.......? Why not bill as established detailed with numerous dx code si insurance would pay.  There was nothing done that would not be done at normal EKG or other procedure........

provider will not change coding..what do you all think?   What would your practice do?

mAny thanks for your input"..............
