For one, simply show the doctor the definition of 99050 in CPT, which clearly states "in office". Second, I would be concerned about the ED code - unless your doctor was the only one who saw the patient in the ED. More often then not, the ED doc has already submitted his/her claim and yours will be denied as duplicate, even though the NPI is different. I try to get my docs to use codes other than ED codes if at all possible.
