Who can bill for this CPT? The description is Emergency Dept visit, since it's an E/M code, this should be used only by the ER physician, not the hospital/facility, right? Please advise.

Hi!
I code Emergency Room charts for physicians and facility. Yes, the E/M
level 99281-99285 are used for both physician and facility. The difference
is on the physician chart you are only billing for the services performed by
the physician-the level and any procedures the physician performed. On the facility chart you are coding for services for the facility only -pushes-supplies etc along with your E/M level.
I hope this helps.
:p
