    Default Pulmonary Function Test, what are the correct billing codes?
    Medical Coding Books
    I have read the whole LCD for the PFT but i still have my doubts on how to correctly bill one.

    1-94200-59: M.V.V
    1-94240 : FRC
    1-94250-59: Expired Gas
    1-94260 :Thoracic Gas Volume
    1-94350-59: HET
    1-94360-59: DET of Resistance Airflow
    1-94370 : DET of Airway Closing Volume
    1-94720-59: Carbon Monoxide Diffusing Capacity

    Would any additional codes be appropiate? or should i remove some?

    Please link any references.

    Thank you!

    I have a Physician questioning if only a pulmonalogy can only bill for PFT's because she is an allergist. A recent billing CME seminar told her only pulmonalogy gets paid for PFT testing. I can't find any egulations to support that. Please comment.
