Just I need the confirmation.
99211 or 99201 is non-MD code.
99212 & 99202 to 99215 99205.....are only MD or DO and sometime DC or NP, PA & etc.

Acupuncturist ...can only charge 99211 & 99201

is this correct?
thank you

No 99211 and 99201 are physician and PA and NP. The 99211 is a provider level that can be charged when other qualified ancillary person are carrying out physician orders from a previous encounter while the provider in the office area.
acupuncturist can charge acupuncture codes found in the medicine section

On page 526 of 2012 CPT code book, it stated E/M may be reported separately, using modfier25.

Acutally, 99211 or 99201 with modifier 25, paid by all most all payer to licensed acupuncturist. However, to my question is 99211 & upper codes also payable with modifiery 25?. To my understanding, these codes are only payable MD, DO, DC & NP PA.
thank you
