Pt seen in ER for the following CPT code: 90839
and add on "90840".
Dr. entered "90840" 14 times. Will I bill "90840" x 14 or is there another add on procedure for this many multiple add on code?

If it is Psychotherapy for crisis, you are billing the correct codes. Also, CMS has not published the MUE of CPT 90840. So i would suggest bill the appropriate units as per your case and if it got denied, please request the medical policy and documentation for the reason.
