Can a physician bill a 99205 or any e&m based on time only? There wasn't an exam done. The patient was seen basically to discuss her options.... Help please! Thanks
I know you can have E&M's where time trumps everything else. And I have read the "time" guidelines in the CPT however I wasn't sure if all the rules are the same when the entire visit is only time spent and nothing else was done. No HPI, no ROS, no exam and no MDM just time spent counseling the patient on options.
