Our office had a woman come in to get her blood drawn for prenatal labs and due to a extreme needle phobia our provider spent over 90 minutes with her. During this time no other consulting or medical services took place. Is there a way to bill for the time our provider took with the patient? I would greatly appreciate advice in this as it does not seem appropriate to bill an e/m code as our provider did not gather medical history nor did any counseling for a medical problem.
