If all the patient came in for was to have blood drawn for labs (for example, the day after a doctor's appointment, so they could fast), it wouldn't be appropriate to bill an office visit (no E/M was really done at the time). But, if the nurse checked their BP, weight, temp, etc. and documented their status, then you can justify the 99211. It'll just depend on your notes. Hope that helps!
