Can we bill multiple units of G0447 if we spent more than 15 minutes counseling the pt? Example: If we counseled the pt for 1 hour, can we bill G0447 x4 units? Thanks

I am not thinking so but there is nothing in writing either way. The reason I do not think so is the code is written as 15 minutes, not, every 15 minutes. While this is a picky little difference in wording it can mean a big difference in application
