Allergy Office Visit Question

  1. Default Allergy Office Visit Question
    Medical Coding Books
    Can you bill an E/M code (99211-99214) with allergy testing (95024, 95004)? Can you bill the E/M code if a patient comes in for allergy testing and then sees the doctor for plan of treatment on the same day? Can you bill a higher level E/M code if they come in for follow up of testing and another issue? Example: Patient comes in for final day of allergy testing, sees the doctor after testing for their GERD, hearing loss or other issue and also discusses treatment for their allergies. Is there a reference with the guidelines for this billing? Thanks!!!

    It is possible to code an established E/M on the same day as allergy testing as long as a 25 modifier is included.
