Thread: Nebulizer in ED

    Default Nebulizer in ED

    AAPC: Back to School
    I would like to know if the MD in the ED can bill for a Nebulizer treatment (94640) on the Part B side. In an office setting it is different but I was wondering if it is billable on the physician side in the ED. I'm pretty sure the MD is just ordering it and highly doubt that he/she is the one actually providing the treatment.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The nebulizer charge goes to the facility in the ED

    Yes , Nebulizer was only ordered by physician , so physician can't bill for nebulizer treatment .
