Thread: Six Minute Walk Test

  1. #1

    Default Six Minute Walk Test

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have some input regarding the Six Minute Walk Test. My Providers are considering asking patients to do one when necessary.

    Is it paid by any/all insurances?

    Are you having any issues getting reimbursed?

    Do you feel it is worth introducing to the practice?

    Any special billing rules?

    Thanks in advanced for any/all input

    CPT 94620 appears to be a covered Medicare service, status indicator X, payment $50 -$70 on the facility side.

    Pulmonary stress testing; simple (e.g., 6-minute walk test, prolonged exercise test for bronchospams with pre- and post-spirometry and oximetry)

    LCD's on CMS web-site:
    Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation


    Hope this helps,
