Of interest, Healthcare Business Monthly April 2015 pp. 26 & 27 lists 2 examples of visits and says they are not billable as 99211. Both examples are listed on Debra's source doc as "generally billable" (notice the author couches with generally billable & not billable) & this 4/2015 article says no. One is the UA with prescription & the other is a patient who had a medication change d/t results of a test. Also, you have to be careful about that dressing change for injury because it could be post-procedural care for an injury under a global period. It is very confusing.
