    I have been searching for the same answer myself. The only thing I can find is in an AAFP document dates April 2001.

    The answer is No, it's considered part of the E/M code.

    i work for a Peds office , Can we charge for the Flourescein eyedrops? Ive researched before and I thought it was included in the E/M? My Physcians are asking again if I can code for it. I cant find it anywhere to code? Help!
