Patient comes in for PFT. No assessment is performed by provider. The only indication that shows patient is in for PFT is an order slip which states"poorly maintained asthma". Patient is sent to respiratory therapy and PFT performed with codes 94010,94510,94375,94664 assigned by therapist.

A week ago same patient is treated for asthma.

Should I assign a e/m code with this visit? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

E&M Code for PFT

I would not assign an E&M code since one cannot be verified by documentation and on audit it would not hold up against review.

No E&M should be assigned. It is fine to charge just the PFT as long as you have an order from a referring physician.
