Time based coding

  1. Default Time based coding
    Medical Coding Books
    If my doctor documents that 15 minutes was Psychotherapy on a 30 minute visit and my E/M elements take me to 99213. Knowing that I can't use psychotherapy code 90833. Do I only code 99213 or do I code 99214 E/M time based? Thanks
