What would be the correct code for a first time patient under the age of three? I think it is D0145, but unsure if D0150 is an option? This would be the first exam in our office and the patient is not in pain.
The most appropriate exam code for a child under the age of 3 would be D0145. The exam code D0150 would not be appropriate and should not be used in this instance.
