    Question Inhaler education

    AAPC: Back to School
    CPT code 94664 is an inhaler education CPT code. We are a family practice and want to know what the reimbursement would be, if any. Especially with Medicaid. I thank you in advance for your response!

    94664 is for bronchodilator administration - not just education. Medicare allows $12.44 in our area (Texas), and it's not on our Medicaid Fee schedule. Usually you can find
    Medicare/Medicaid information online, so check with your local carrier's website.

    For simply educating the patient about their inhaler, I would use an E/M code.

    I'm in Oklahoma & Medicaid lists $12.49 & Medicare lists $13.19. It's a Medicare status A code, which says it's a separately paid...but I don't have much experience with it to tell you much more...sorry
