Our physician did a 6 Minute Walk with a patient for the first time. The only thing measured was distance. Can we bill 94620 when this was the only thing measured?

If no O2 stats were recorded you cannot bill 94620-- the cpt code specifically states "with pre and post spirometry and oximetry" furthermore, a 6min walk by definition is a pulmonary diagnostic test, so bp, respirations and oximetry should at least be reported....
I would not bill
sorry
