Medication Management

Our providers had used the M0064 (Brief Medication Management) in the past before it was deleted. One of our providers has decided to "fast-track" his patients and charge a 99212. He will review the patient's UDS results and the MA's notes of H/P. Can we bill a 99212 for him if he never actually "sees" the patient face to face?

Thanks so much!

I would say no. The CPT 2015 book says "Typically, 10 minutes are spent face-to-face with the patient and/or family." I would think a 99211 would be more appropriate as the book says "Typically, 5 minutes are spent performing OR SUPERVISING these services".
