Billing for preventive medicine and office visit

Can I bill for both a preventive medicine visit (99381-99397) and an office visit (99201-99215) on the same day?

Although CPT instruction clearly states that it is appropriate to bill for both services on the same day and the -25 modifier should be placed upon the office/outpatient code to indicate that a significant, separately identifiable service was provided, not all carriers will pay for both.
