Thread: Reading PPD Test

    Default Reading PPD Test

    AAPC: Back to School
    The AAFP suggests that a physician or nurse can bill a 99211 for the reading of a PPD test. I was always under the impression that it was inclusive to the test itself... Thanks.

    I am under the same impression - that the reading is part of the test itself. Any input from others?
