Pulmonologist administrative time

Connie Posted Mon 26th of March, 2012 17:42:12 PM

Can a pulmonologist charge for administrative time while changing oxygen set up, type of oxygen, oxygen DME, sending cpap's back, etc that are done over the phone, if the patient is not currently in the office. Our pulmonologist spends a lot of time doing these tasks. What codes can we use to bill this time?

The payments for the given scenario depend upon several of the factor like - CPT code, Type of visit (inpatient vs. outpatient), New or follow-up etc.
Could you please share the billed CPT code, so I can assist you further?
