Can we bill CPT code 99490 (chronic care management) and 99291 or 99292 (transitional care) within the same 30 day period

CPT codes 99291 or 99292 are not for transitional care management.
As per CMS, you cannot bill in addition to chronic care management services (99490) for a patient during the same time period are transitional care management services (99495 or 99496), home health care supervision (G0181), hospice care supervision (G0182), or certain end-stage renal disease services (90951-90970).

Sorry the correct transitional care codes should have been 99495 and 99496

Yes, you are right. Transitional care codes are 99495 and 99496.
