Well I agree and disagree... if thats possible... in the office I work in now... we don't charge for the reading because the pt's complained enough about having to pay a copay, although they weren't charged/billed for a copay for the actual test...
My personal opinion is that we should charge for a reading (99211) at one point we did until the complaints came in from the pt's who have copays with their insurance.
