    Unhappy group visit coding

    I also am having a hard time figuring out how to bill for DM group visits.
    I have a physician that sees patients in a group setting to discuss DM care and managment.
    I thought the appropriate code is 99078, but I am finding opposition to using that code.
    The physician wants to use E&M codes 99212-99215 based on time.

    What would the appropriate code be?

    What did you end up do?
