Can I get some current information in regards to Nurses meeting with the patients and providing education 30-60 minutes. This takes place in a hospital owned outpatient facility (19). Are we allowed to bill for this service or is it already part of the service when the patient starts treatment? I have read several forums and Medicare site but I do not have any solid information to give to the Director. I appreciate any resource you can give me. thank you

Education coding

We use 98960 for when our nurses are providing education. I have also used 99211. If it is 60 minutes you can use 98960x2.
