Telephone pre-op

Hello,
I was wondering if this was able to be billed. The patient hasn't been seen in a month and their surgery was three days after the phone call. The documentation is a complete pre-op appointment, which we would typically charge for. The only thing is no physical exam due to it being a phone conversation. The note also states that it took approximately 30 minutes.

I was looking at 99441-99443 and 98966-98968. I don't know which would be more appropriate or if there's something else I'm not seeing.

Help!!!!

Was this for a minor procedure or major? Subsequent to the decision for surgery is bundled into the global surgical package doesntg matter if it was decided on more than 30 days ago. You will not be able to bill for a phone call to go over typical pre-op.
