Billie:
Are you contracted with any payors ?
We are an Urgent Care, we use POS 20, and unless otherwise specified by a contract with a payor, we use E & M codes based on level of services rendered.
99058 is a code that we are contracted to use with 1 payor only, and they even deny the code sometimes.
As far as supplies, you can bill for them, but don't expect to get paid for them. They are usually built into the procedure.
Good luck to you

We are contracted with one payor! but we do not get paid for the 99085 code. can we bill the 99070 for supplies such as syringes, gauze, sutures, also what code do you use for lidocraine anesthesia. Thanks Billie

You should follow coding guidelines. All of these items are included in the CPT codes. There is not a code for lidocaine "numbing" (local infiltration) - all part of the surgical package. See page 47 of CPT professional edition. If you don't have that edition, find the Surgery Guidelines at the front of the surgery section.
