Hi, please provide your advice on the following question; Is it required to document on the report the total time when reporting Neuropsychological testing, administration scoring, (codes-96132,96133,96136,96137), and Neurobehavioral status examination (codes- 96116 & 96121.) Thank You

Hi,
 

CPT code for neuropsychological testing (96132,96133,96136,96137), and neurobehavioral status examination (96116 & 96121) are time-based codes, so it is necessary to mention in documents that how much time was spent for the test.

 
Thanks
