Do I code as lowest level if there aren't explicit times?

On one of the progress notes I'm coding from, the provider put the start time but no end time. Should I code it as the lowest level individual psychotherapy (90804)?

Thanks,
Rebecca

90804 requires a minimum of 20-30 min face to face time with the patient. If there is no end time, I don't think you can bill at all. I would ask a clarification from the provider before billing.
