I guess I am just more familiar with Audiologists coding CPT in the 925xx range for their services.
If he documents the required components to meets an 99201-99215 E&M code, then he can code and bill. But not to Medicare and maybe not to other payers.
Q: Can an audiologist ever bill evaluation and management CPT (Current Procedural Terminology, Â©American Medical Association) codes such as 99244, 99201, or 99215?
Audiologists cannot bill Medicare for evaluation and management services (i.e., office visits). Some private health plans allow audiologists to use these codes. You should check with the private health plan before submitting a bill
If he wants to code/bill E&M, I would call your top 5-10 payers and verify their reimbursement guidelines. He would have to look at the 1997 E&M exam guidlines for either General exam or ENT exam and see if he provides that extent of service.
