Thread: e/m code for Neurological service

    Default e/m code for Neurological service

    AAPC: Back to School
    can we charge an E/M same day when performing a nerve conduction study (95900)? The patient was referred to have study done only.

  2. #2

    Default Neuro E&M

    You should only report an E&M service when there is a separate and distinct need for such services to occur. If there is no separate and distinct reason to perform an E&M service, only report the diagnostic for which the patient was referred and had.
