    Default 90801 and 90847

    AAPC: Back to School
    One of my psychiatrist saw a patient and then he also talked to the family after the session with the patient. Can he bill for a 90801 and a 90847 on the same day? If he can, do you use a modifier?

    Per the Medicare CCI edits, mutually exclusive table, you can bill 90847 as the primary code and 90801 with a modifier (modifier 59). Depending on the payor it may or may not be paid.
