"From a CPT coding perspective, based on the information available in your inquiry, and in answer to your question, CPT is a set of codes, descriptions, and guidelines intended to describe procedures and services performed by physicians and other health care providers, therefore, it would not be appropriate to report this code if performed by a manufacturerâ€™s representative."
Above is a part of response I received from the AMA CPT Network in regards to 95972 from November 2010. I know your question is about 62368 but it is the same concept From the response i have received, I have come to this conclusion: It has to be perform by the physician And if the service is soley provided by the Manufacturer's representative regardless of whether the physician is present or not it is NOT a reportable service. At least that is my interpretation of their response. I would explain to the physician that "assuming" you can bill something a certain way can lead to improper payment or misinterpretation of the intent of CPT. I would suggest to him that you poise this question to the AMA via The CPT Network. It would cost 80 dollars. I believe you will get a similiar response as what I have received.
