EKG screening CPT code – g0403,g0405 with valid dx

HCPCS Codes for the IPPE and Screening EKG
G0402 -Initial preventive physical examination; face-to-face visit, services limited to new beneficiary during the first 12 months of Medicare enrollment
G0403 – Electrocardiogram, routine ECG with 12 leads; performed as a screening for the initial preventative physical examination with interpretation and report
G0404 – Electrocardiogram, routine ECG with 12 leads; tracing only, without interpretation and report, performed as a screening for the initial preventative physical examination
G0405 – Electrocardiogram, routine ECG with 12 leads; interpretation and report only, performed as a screening for the initial preventative physical examination

The HCPCS codes for the IPPE do not include other preventive services that are currently paid separately under Medicare Part B screening benefits. When Medicare providers perform these other preventive services, they must identify the services using the appropriate existing codes

Diagnosis Requirements

Although Medicare providers must report a diagnosis code on the claim, there are no specific International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) diagnosis codes that are required for the IPPE and screening EKG. Medicare providers should choose an appropriate ICD-9-CM diagnosis code. Contact the local Medicare Contractor for further guidance.
