    I'll wager an opinion here.

    Check out code 94664. This code is reported only once per day (per patient) regardless of the number of demonstrations you have to do with the patient. If medication is used in the demonstration, you would report that as well with the HCPCS code or 99070.

    You can't report this code on the same encounter as a nebulizer treatment. NCCI edits prohibit this. If the demonstration and the nebulizer treatment are performed a separate encounters, then you can append modifier 59.

    Hope this helps and again this is my opinion.
