For a time-based counseling such as 'smoking cessation' 99406 counseling greater than 3 minutes up to 10 min. In order to charge for this service, doesn't the amount of time '>3 minutes' have to appear in the documentation?

The minimum criteria for this code is > 3 to 10 minutes. So a physician must mention the time involved during the counseling period.
