What code(s) do your physicians use when they do family meetings with out the child present? Sometimes there is a lot of time spent coordinating care with family members regarding a really ill child.

Thank you in advance.:)

Is the visit in the home, office of hospital? You utilize the CPT code for the correct place of service and ensure the physician documents the time spent and indicates that they spent greater than 50% of the time in coordination of care.

In this hospital so the prolonged service codes would work also if the time warrants it? I just wanted to make sure we can bill even if the patient is not present.

I just had a physician call me and state he is giving the test results to the patients family without the patient there. What would I code out for this.
