    Question MD coding 96101

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a MD doing a written test for depression. He is wanting to code 96101. I think he should just code a regualr E/M code. It that correct?

    He may be correct. It depends on the test and time involved.

    Can you tell me the name of the test? Does he review results and write up a report with his finidings and does he spend 31+ minutes in total doing these things?
