Hi,

The correct code for ‘Continuous positive airway pressure ventilation [CPAP], initiation and management’ is 94660.

To bill for 94660 (Continuous positive airway pressure ventilation [CPAP], initiation and management), the physician must provide a face-to-face encounter with the patient on that same date of service. Since this is not a time-based service, it doesn’t require physician presence in the room throughout the entire time the patient is in the office. However, it is not an “incident-to” service, which means you cannot report it when another health care provider performs it.
