    Default How to bill for Dr's opinion of MMI report

    AAPC: Back to School

    One of our physicians reviewed an MMI report for one of his patients and disagreed with the findings and wrote a letter explaining his view and he would like to bill for it--what code can we use?

    you could try 99080, but I would be tempted to contact workers compensation first to see what they would prefer.

    I would suggest contacting your workers comp payer first, Is this something they requested for him to do? In our office we have a letter that we issue to them requesting payment BEFORE we send them the letter. Only once we receive payment do we then send them the letter.
