ostomy coding help

  1. Question ostomy coding help
    Medical Coding Books
    I am seeking some guidance. My boss is interested in hiring an RN to see ostomy patients in the office for ostomy markings, problems and care. I can not seem to find an actual code for these items. I am thinking it may fall under an e/m code. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

    A "nurse visit" would fall under 99211 - evaluation & management section

    That is what I was thinking, but my boss was hoping for more than an e/m code. Thanks.
