Is there a code to bill for this scenario: a patient is referred as a consult to an Interventional Pain Medicine Practice. The nursing staff provides intake services and the physician speaks to the patient and it is determined the patient only wants narcotics and is not interested in injections or other interventional procedures. This practice does not provide that so the patient was not treated further. I know I can't bill 99211 since it is a new patient, but they did not do enough for a 99201. Is there any appropriate way to bill for the staff and physician or is this non-billable? Thank you
