Usually a LVN can report an E/M code for a service provided by him / her. But there are certain rules describing when and how that can be billed (eg, when own NPP no. is to be provided). There are certain modifiers that a LVN can use, like TE modifier, and some other HCPCS modifiers. But there is no specific sets of codes or specialty as such that a LVN uses.
Please look into the below link and probably you may get some better info and help from the nursing professionals directly:
