Our physicians want to bill code 99051 (open on Federal holidays). Has anyone had any experience in bililng this code. I understand that insurance companies are not required to pay for this code. Also, do you notify your patients before being seen that there is an additional charge? Any input you have would be appreciated. Thank you

I probably wouldn't notify unless they are self pay. If you are contracted with patients payer and they don't pay separately for this code, its not patient responsibility it's a write off.
