Can anyone tell me if CPT code 99380 can be billed as an face-to-face service? By the description I would say no but just to be sure, I would love further input.

Counseling / Coordination of care

If the physician was face-to-face with the patient and primarly providing coordination of care, then use the time spent to determine the level of E/M.

The physician must document
1) total time spent face-to-face with patient
2) amount of time that was counseling/coordination of care (must be OVER 50%)
3) state the general nature of the C/C

99379-99380 is for physician supervision of a patient in a nursing facility; is reported ONCE per month. The physician should maintain a log of time spent providing this recurrentsupervision. Be sure to read the guidelines carefully!
