HELP!! 6 Minute Walk - 94620

  1. Default HELP!! 6 Minute Walk - 94620
    Medical Coding Books
    Our physician did a 6 Minute Walk with a patient for the first time. The only thing measured was distance. Can we bill 94620 when this was the only thing measured?

  2. #2
    They didn't measure o2 sats?

  3. Default
    No, just how far they were able to walk within that 6 minutes.

  4. #4
    If no O2 stats were recorded you cannot bill 94620-- the cpt code specifically states "with pre and post spirometry and oximetry" furthermore, a 6min walk by definition is a pulmonary diagnostic test, so bp, respirations and oximetry should at least be reported....
    I would not bill
