    AAPC: Back to School

    Our physician has started e-prescription for the Medicare patients. When our physician E-prescribe all the medication for a visit we are using CPT G8443.
    But for some patients physician is not generating e-prescription and giving a manual prescription for some or the other reason.
    In such a scenario which CPT code we should use G8445 or G8446?
    As we have a document saying that for all the Medicare claims we should add either of the three G codes.
    Please help.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Neha Bhatnagar, CPC, CPC-H

    Neha - my understanding is that G8445 is used when no prescription is generated during the visit - G8446 is used when your physician writes a script - rather than sending it electronically.
