    Our doctor spent three hours on a new patient that included counseling. Is there an additional code we can bill besides just 99205?

    Hi,

    You can bill prolonged visit codes 99354-99355 along with 99205.

    After coding 99205 (Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of a ne patient ...), you still have 120 uncaptured face-to-face minutes. CPT allots about 60 minutes to a typical level-five new patient office/outpatient visit.

    You can bill 99354, 99355 for additional time.

     

     

     

    Hope that helps!
