I understand that a 99358 can be used before or after an E/M.
The question that has arisen is, the 99358 specifies that it can be used ONCE on a calendar date, however can the provider attach a 99358 to two separate calendar days, i.e. 99358 x1 on 6/29 and 99358 on 7/2, with an E/M on 6/26? Both dates the provider documented that >30 minutes was spent reviewing records.

Thanks

There is no indication in the code description that there is a limit on the use of this code. If there is prolonged treatment, then it should be used.
