Maybe I'm reading your scenario wrong, but I thought Dr M already billed 99291.
Are both physicians in the same practice, same specialty? Then they will be considered the same doctor so all the time should be added together and billed under one physician (take your pick Dr A or Dr M) using the appropriate 99291 and 99292 codes.
If they are different practices or different specialties in the same practice, they can each use the 99291 code as per the time they individually documented.
Hope that answers the question.
