Advance care planning including the explanation and discussion of advance directives such as standard forms (with completion of such forms, when performed), by the physician or other qualified health care professional; first 30 minutes, face-to-face with the patient, family member(s), and/or surrogate

I'm trying to figure out if we are leaving money on the table by not using this code. I bill 99222 / 99223 and I'd like to know if someone more familiar could explain the use of this code and if you are using modifier -25 and/or -33

Thank you so much in advance

Lynn
