We use time based billing in our office. Does this make us exempt from using a CPT code and advanced care planning code together? IE: (We see nursing home patients) 99310 and 99497 is what's I'd like to use together - with all the proper documentation. If we are billing based off time can I use both codes?

First you need to completely separate the time spent on advanced planning code from the E&M code. I don't know what you mean by time based billing in your office. Are you ignoring the leveling requirements on all your E&M's? I didn't think you can pick and choose, when assigning 99307-99310.
