How do you code for a Nebulizer mask

obinna Posted Mon 23rd of March, 2015 22:45:24 PM

A patient comes in for bronchiolitis.

The doctor chooses ICD-9 code 466.19 for bronchiolitis

The doctor chooses cpt codes:
94640 (inhalation treatment)
A7015 (Nebulizer mask)
94760 (pulse oximeter)

How would this be coded exactly?

Hi,
94760 would not be coded separately as per CMS. Rest of the code selection is correct.
Thanks
