    We do not bill for this. It is a cost of doing business.

    If the encounter is significantly longer as a result, you may be able to use the prolonged service code in addition to your E/M.

    Thank you, but some insurances actually DO pay the provider for this but I am not sure how to bill for it. I am just researching for now but do appreciate the feed back.
