92507: SPEECH THERAPY, HOW MANY MINUTES DOES THIS CODE REQUIRE?

The code does not specify any time.
CPT code 92507 (treatment of speech, language, voice, communication, and/or auditory processing disorder [includes aural rehabilitation]; individual) is for individual and it is the otorhinolaryngologic service for diagnostic or treatment procedure, typically provided by otolaryngologist. The service includes medical diagnostic evaluation and technical procedure. If your physician is truly performing this type of service in addition to an office visit, consider using an evaluation and management (E/M) services code in addition to the speech evaluation. But, an office visit rarely would accompany any of the three codes (92506, 92507, and 92508). Code 92507 does not specify time spent and this is why the payer does not allow you to consider the amount of time when billing.
