How to code a school visit?

    Default How to code a school visit?
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a psychologist who is asking about being able to go to the patient's school to meet with staff to discuss patient's issues and to discuss a treatment approach.

    I know there is such thing as POS school, but I just am not sure how I would code this service.

    90887?? Does this get paid?

    I would personally check with this pt's insurance plan to see if it is a reimburseable/covered service, prior to the physician doing this service

    Just my opinion

    thats what we'll have to do. Medicare and MA dont like this, so I am guessing this might not be the easiest situation to deal with.

    Thanks,
