Prolonged Service Without Direct Patient Contact

Karen Posted Wed 25th of January, 2017 08:46:02 AM
I'm wondering what all services entail for this non face-to-face code. Our clinical assistants obtain prior authorization for medications after the patient has been seen in the office. Can we count that time spent getting those auths towards the time for this code?

As per CMS guidelines, you cannot count time spent on getting auths towards the time for this code.

Do you have a link to that CMS guidelines? Thank you!
