Dear all,

I work for an ENT and I have been asked by an oral surgeon/dentist who is a friend of the doctor for some help. He apparently was told that he can bill an office visit to medical insurance when evaluating a patient for an oral appliance for sleep apnea. Anyway, when I look online, I can't find any information about what guidelines an oral surgeon would use to code an E&M. The 1995 guidelines look like they would most closely fit to me, but I just wanted to get some insight from those around here who might know how this is typically coded, I would hate to give the wrong information to the doctor's friend. Any help would be appreciated.
