Can I bill if my Dr didn't see pt face to face?

Kimberley Posted Tue 10th of November, 2015 09:43:08 AM

My Dr was contacted by the admitting Dr for advice on how to proceed with care for a patient. My Dr spend several hours reviewing pt's record, speaking to admitting Dr and speaking to pt on the phone, but never actually saw the pt face to face. Is this billable?

Hi,

You can use CPT code 99448 with 99449 according to time spend over phone to code your physician's service.
