    Default CPT code 99211

    AAPC: Back to School
    Please give me a great way of explaining the use of this code. I have a RN, ARNP and PA disagreeing about the correct use of this procedure code. Thanks

    Default Cpt 99211

    I was taught that the 99211 is for a Nurse Visit. Example of Nurse visit would be a B/P check, suture removal, etc; where the practitioner is not involved at the time of the visit.
    Your PA's and FNP's should not be billing 99211.

    Here is how I explain it:
    99211 is a PROVIDER level
    It is the level a provider may charge when a qualified ancillary staff person is face to face with the patient carrying out the orders of the provider dictated in a previous encounter, as long as the provider it is billed under is on site at the time of the visit.
