    Well bill 99211 for our Coumadin Clinic along with 85610-QW. A medical assistance does the office visit along with the finger stick and the 99211 is covered under the "incident to" rule. One physician is in the office suite at all times.

    I still disagree with the use of the 99211. The patient is there for a scheduled procedure if you will. The 36415-6. When a CPT code exists for the service ordered to be performed then thst is the code we must use. You cannot code a 99211 with the 36415-6 so there for you may not use the 99211. The service is incident to I agree but there is a code for the service ordered and performed.

    If a patient comes in for a routine protime for which they see the nurse who does the appropriate evaluation and documentation, pricks the finger, documents results, discusses with MD any change in dosage, again documents appropriately; in my opinion this qualifies for 99211.
