    Coding Based on Time

    I have a provider questioning the coding of time. For example a 99213 is 15 minutes and 99214 is 25 minutes. (I realize it has to be greater than these "typical" times with greater than 50% in counseling and coordination). The provider is saying if it is 21 minutes you would round up to the...

    Wiki Diag codes to be used with 99497 and 99498

    Does anyone know what ICD-10 code can be used with the new End of Life Care CPT codes 99497 and 99498? I believe the HCPCS code might be S0257. For non-medicare patients Z02.89 looked like it might be suitable, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have advice? I have also received mixed messages on...
