What E/m Code Do We Use For A Family Consultation Between Physician And Family Member If Patient Is Not Present.

You could use 99499 Unlisted E&M service. Medicare will not pay for this, and I don't think any other insurance company will either. Either the family member pays for this out of their pocket or the physician does not charge for this service.

We billed an E/M based on time to non-Medicare payers since CPT says, "Physicians typically spend ___ minutes face-to-face with the patient and/or family." Medicare doesn't cover visits for a patient when there is no face-to-face with the patient.
