Hello,

Can anyone advise how do you code an office visit where the patient comes in to go over the test results, there is no examination and they make a plan to do carpal tunnel surgery?

I was given a diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel, what CPT code do I use? Would it be a 99211 or a 99212?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
LLR
