Can you bill E&M 99211 and S9445 on the same day when a patient came in for pre-op teaching? Nurse reviewed the surgical procedure, answered all patient's questions, provided paperwork to complete check-in process.Thanks.

I can tell you Medicare won't pay for the service. You would need to check with the applicable carrier's policies to determine if pre-op teaching by a non-physician is covered. I believe you can check NCCI code pairs to see if the 99211 and S9445 can be billed together.
