TB screening, no tb test- help

    Default TB screening, no tb test- help
    Medical Coding Books
    What do we bill for a tb screening, a series of questions done normally by the nurse and once no tb exposure or risk factor is identified the pt is clear, normally a form is completed and signed.
    Can we bill a 99211?/

  2. Default
    Usually what we do is if it was a tb only - you can bill nurse visit w/ 86580 & no charge for pt to come back for reading

    Hope this helps
