    AAPC: Back to School
    our respiratory therapy dept. does an vent setup in the ER and wants to charge cpt code 94002 in the cpt book it states that this code cannot be charged with E&M codes. I am not sure how to charge for this most of our pts. are flown out shortly after. If anyone has any info I would sure appreciate the help. Thanks

    this code also states hospital inpatient/observation, how could you use that in the ED?
