Yes, you can use anticoagulation management codes (99363 and 99364) but they are status b bundled codes so Medicare doesn't pay (some other carriers do, in my experience).

Protime Management

The Protime Management codes are non covered by Medicare. In addition you would not use them for managing protime via the telephone as stated in your scenario. Medicare patients must be seen face to face in order to bill a service. The answer to your question is no the service is not billable as described in your posting.
