    Smile 96110, 96111 developmental testing

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for information on 96110 and 96111. It looks like these are not timed. When would 96111 be used as opposed to 96110.

    I would value any info, I am new to coding. The boss asked me to find out what I could.

    Thanks, Susan

    96111 is more extensive per the CPT description.

    96110: Developmental testing; limited (eg, Developmental Screening Test II, Early Language Milestone Screen), with interpretation and report

    96111: extended (includes assessment of motor, language, social, adaptive and/or cognitive functioning by standardized developmental instruments) with interpretation and report

    Default Billing for Psychologists

    So is the 96110 like the initial assessment and the 96111 an extension with more tests and you can bill both in the same date of service? Also are both codes a 1 unit code and not time based at all? My providers are the psychologists and these codes don't require an E/M right?
