99239-about the appropriate

  1. #1
    Question 99239-about the appropriate
    New Call-to-action
    my is about the appropriate documentation for 99239; the follwowing are some of the documentation examples we are seeing, are there any that are not acceptable?

    time spent on dc > 30 min
    dc time 31
    more than 30 min on dc

  2. Default
    The only one I would accept to support 99239 is #2......dc time 31

    Codes based on time require documentation of time and #1 and #3 don't do that.
