    Default Medication Managment

    AAPC: Back to School
    What CPT do we use for medication management? This would be for an adolescent treatment facility that want to bill for handing out the patients medication.

    Can we do that?

    I do not think you can bill a code just for handing out meds. I would think that this is included in employees hourly wage as part of their job

    Is the patient being seen for a office visit where medications are discussed?

    Look at 90862... I don't know if this helps or not.

    You can not use 90862 for actually handing out the meds. 90862 is for managing the meds, not giving them, so I would veer away from this.

    If the patient is simply coming in to pick up an Rx and not being seen by a physician, you cannot code for it.
