    Question 99358: Implications of Text Change in 2010 CPT

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Afternoon!

    I'm reviewing the 2010 CPT Changes for a training presentation I'm preparing and I noticed that the text for CPT 99358 changed drastically. A portion of the text deleted includes the directive to "(List seperately in addition to code(s) for other physician service(s) and/or inpatient or outpatient Evaluation and Management service)."

    Does this mean this code may now be reported on its own; without an accompanying E&M code?

    Did anyone else notice this change?

    I look forward to your perspective/input!

    Jodie, CPC

    Default Read the guidelines

    Read the guidelines carefully and you will see that this must be related to a face-to-face service.

    It does not HAVE to be on the same date of service, but I do not know how you will possibly relate it to the face-to-face service if it is not on the same claim.

    Hope that helps.
