    The way the AMA designed it yes, however early on with this set of codes CMS sent a memo that stated that even with a 25 modifier and different dx they will not pay for both an OV and the anticoag monitoring, they will pay the lesser of the 2 and other carriers followed suit. So advice is I would not.

    We just started billing for PT/INR We were told to bill 99211(RN,sees the patient face to face)along with the code 85610. I was told not to use any modifier but we are not a lab, we do not have CLIA # which for that code know isn't needed but I thought I would need to use the modifier QW with the 85610.


    Thank you please help

    You cannot bill a 99211 for the nurse to draw blood even with vital signs.

    its not a blood draw just a lancet is used not a blood draw w/needle. The blood is put then on a slide and read by the nurse. I hope this makes more sensce. This whole thing is making me nervous reck. Does there still need to be a QW modifier put on the86150?

    Thanks for your time I really appreciate
