Question: I would like to create a wellness program through my practice and market Health Risk Appraisals to local industries and individuals. What CPT code would I use to bill these services? Any suggestions on getting started?

Answer: Most physicians who do this work have direct contracts with the employers. In such cases, there are no coding issues - physicians simply send the employer an invoice for the services rendered as agreed upon.

If you're interested in establishing an occupational medicine service line, the best thing to do is to contact the benefits offices of your top local employers. Ask to meet with them about their healthcare needs: Do they do pre-employment screening? Physicals for their executives? Negotiate the service, the price, the turnaround time, and the billing. Physicians who do this successfully guarantee quick access, quick turnaround, and top-notch service, but also garner good reimbursement and quick payment.
